Social Justice Book Group: The 1619 Project

Social Justice Book Group: The 1619 Project

We strive to learn more about the world outside our own bubbles. We read both nonfiction and fiction on timely topics and in our discussions try to challenge our own assumptions without judging one another.

This month we're reading The 1619 Project, a special issue of The New York Times Magazine. 

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.

You can find the full text of the magazine online here: http://bit.ly/1619FullText

We will also have copies available where book group books are usually held, by the Reference Desk.
