"The animating idea of The 1619 Project is that our national narrative is more accurately told if we begin not on July 4, 1776, but in late August of 1619, when a ship arrived in Jamestown bearing a cargo of twenty to thirty enslaved people from Africa. Their arrival inaugurated a barbaric and unprecedented system of chattel slavery that would last for the next 250 years. This is sometimes referred to as the country's original sin, but it is more than that: It is the country's very origin. The 1619 Project tells this new origin story, placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of Black Americans at the center of the story we tell ourselves about who we are as a country. Orchestrated by the editors of The New York Times Magazine, led by MacArthur "genius" and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones, this collection of essays and historical vignettes includes some of the most outstanding journalists, thinkers, and scholars of American history and culture--including Linda Villarosa, Jamelle Bouie, Jeneen Interlandi, Matthew Desmond, Wesley Morris, and Bryan Stevenson. Together, their work shows how the tendrils of 1619--of slavery and resistance to slavery--reach into every part of our contemporary culture, from voting, housing and healthcare, to the way we sing and dance, the way we tell stories, and the way we worship. Interstitial works of flash fiction and poetry bring the history to life through the imaginative interpretations of some of our greatest writers. The 1619 Project ultimately sends a very strong message: We must have a clear vision of this history if we are to understand our present dilemmas. Only by reckoning with this difficult history and trying as hard as we can to understand its powerful influence on our present, can we prepare ourselves for a more just future"--… (mere)

I deleted the review. It was an interesting experiment. Please move on ( )

I took my time with this book; reading a chapter or two then spending some time thinking about. So much information to unpack; so many new conclusions to consider. Facts are always open to interpretation, new understandings, and disagreements about their importance, but they must in the first instance be brought to light. That is the greatest success of The 1619 Project. Moreover, the writing is beautiful and informative throughout; the poems are moving. ( )

An important work that should be recommended reading for an American History class. Difficult to read at times but had to absorb and appreciate the lives of those impacted and are still impacted by the history of the USA. Reparations are way overdue to affected individuals. ( )

Outstanding and wide-ranging look at some of the darkest aspects of American history and how they continue to affect the present. For those who have complained that the essays in this book draw questionable conclusions from the research -- please take a look at the historiography of the United States of American. Having grown up 'educated' from Lost Cause textbooks designed to create a certain image of the past that omits the voices of many who live here, I didn't start learning until I could deconstruct much of what had been indoctrinated. What's also helpful about the 1619 Project are the receipts provided by the authors, anticipating that many will question some of the conclusions drawn. The missed opportunities to build a country that extended the phrase, 'all (people) are created equal,' to everyone -- abandoned at the end of Reconstruction, the role of backlash in undoing progress, and systems designed to create separation and to support stereotypes of who belongs and who doesn't - all provide reasons to question what we thought we knew and to understand some of our misconceptions were by design.

Outstanding and important project. Those that want to eliminate it from the public discourse have, no doubt, an agenda that is far from honorable. ( )

Growing up in the 1970s my Mom put Roots on the family bookshelf right with her collection of James Michener books like The Covenant and Herman Wouk's The Winds of War. My mom decided it was essential to display Alex Haley's book in our home and have it accessible to the entire family.

Now that I've finished my slow read of The 1619 Project, I'll place it downstairs in the family room next to my collection of books that I think are precious and should be accessible to the entire family, including The Great War by Studs Terkel and my collection of 19th-century hardcover classics.

You should read this book and own a copy. Every time I picked up and read a chapter, I learned something I did not know about our Country and the history of Black Americans (and therefore all Americans). I don't understand this sudden shying away from our past, or banning books, or not talking about diversity, equity, and inclusion. Let's talk about it. Let's learn. Let's grow. Let's look back so we can learn and understand to move forward.

A sidenote: I loved the inclusion of poetry between the chapters. What a gift to have the chance to find new poets and have them take part along with all of the experts who wrote each chapter. This blend of words, art, and history... so good! ( )
