Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones will discuss her new book, “The 1619 Project: A New Origin Story,” with Times Executive Editor Kevin Merida.
In August 1619, a ship arrived in the British colony of Virginia bearing a cargo of 20 to 30 enslaved people from Africa. Their arrival led to the system of American slavery that would last for the next 250 years. “The 1619 Project: A New Origin Story” expands on Hannah-Jones’ Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times Magazine project that reframed American history to place slavery and its continuing legacy at the center of our national narrative.
“The 1619 Project” will be published on Nov. 16 and includes expanded versions of the series’ original essays as well as new fiction, poetry and photography that explores the legacy of slavery in present-day America.
A limited number of signed copies of “The 1619 Project” are available at Eso Won Books.
