Join Pulitzer-Prize winner and The New York Times staff writer, Nikole Hannah-Jones, as she discusses her book, The 1619 Project, and how the legacy of slavery did not end with emancipation.
The year 1619 marked the beginning of American chattel slavery, where enslaved people from Africa were forcefully brought to the United States. The 1619 Project discusses the hidden truths about America’s founding and how the aftermath of slavery is still a part of contemporary life.
Hannah-Jones has dedicated her life to racial inequalities and injustices, earning multiple awards, including a Peabody Award and the MacArthur Fellowship. She is currently serving as the Knight Chair of Race and Journalism at Howard University, where she is founding the Center for Journalism and Democracy. She also was the co-founder of the Ida B. Wells Society for Investigative Reporting.
