The 1619 Project Symposium

When did slavery begin in the USA? What has been the impact of systemic racism on African American Church, Medicine/Black American Health, Politics, Capitalism, Music, The Black Church and more.

Thanks to Nikole Hanna-Jones and a cadre of writers, academics, and historians for the 1619 Project, we have the answers. The 1619 Project is a hybrid collection of nonfiction essays that explore 18 different American institutions and phenomena impacted by systemic racism. Yes, we finally get the answers to these and many more questions.

Join us in a look at ten(10) of the essays in 1619 Project: A New Origin Story Symposium, which provides a more perfect view of American History without redactions related to racism and slavery. The symposium is led by Dr. Carol Francois, educator, writer, and podcast host.
