‘The 1619 Project’ Discussion Group
Beginning Tues., Oct. 6 at 6:30 p.m., join educator Beverly Braxton for a bi-weekly discussion exploring “The 1619 Project,” a publication of the New York Times Magazine, which marks the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans to Jamestown, Virginia.
The series highlights the contributions of black Americans and the many ways the legacy of slavery continues to shape society in the United States. The project includes essays, photos, stories, music and poems that challenge readers to examine their knowledge of U.S. history and provides a lens to understand the moment of racial reckoning we are in today.
