The 1619 Project: A Brief Revelation of the American past and present
The Black story of America needs to be told; The 1619 Project shows there is a much richer story to be told. Yes, some of this history is hard to hear. It's difficult to admit that many of the Founding Fathers ran forced labor camps, and used violence and fear to maintain order & profits. But how is it we can really understand the people who came before us without knowing the conflict that was core to their being?
Don't believe all the criticism - Much of the criticism of the original 1619 Project focuses on two points: a) that slavery was a driving reason behind Colonists supporting the American Revolution, and b) the statement 1619 instead of 1776 is the founding year in our nation.
The 1619 Project has been tied to Critical Race Theory and claimed as an attempt to erase history and/or make white children feel bad for the past. But this book does not make any attempt to erase history, nor will it make you feel bad. Instead you'll feel empowered by hearing the history from the perspective of Black Americans.
This Book is an Eye Opener that will Reveal everything you Don't know about the 1619 Project.
