The 1619 Project: A New Origin Story
edited by Nikole Hannah-Jones, Caitlin Roper, Ilena Silverman, and Jake Silverstein
I listened to The 1619 Project podcast when it came out in 2020. It was one of the best pieces of history, analysis, and journalism I have ever encountered. (If you have not listened to it, I give it a 5-star recommendation.)
Since then, I have paid closer attention to Nikole Hannah-Jones’ work. Last week, my library request for the book based on the project was finally fulfilled. t’s a mix of essays, poetry, fiction, and photographs. This is not going to be an easy read, but it is a great piece of analysis and art.
