The 1619 Project

The 1619 Project is a major initiative from The New York Times observing the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe the country’s history, understanding 1619 as our true founding, and placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of the story we tell ourselves about who we are

This is the beginning of the 1619 Project. We will be publishing more stories in the days and weeks to come...

Angela was the original embodiment of enslavement, of survival, of the 400-year African American struggle to survive, to be free of racism; John was the original embodiment of elite white male power, of the democracy of racists, of its 400-year struggle to survive, to be free of anti-racism...
