The 1619 Project is an initiative by The New York Times that re-examines the history, and lasting influence, of American slavery on our society.
Join us the first Tuesday of each month as we continue to discuss how the legacy of slavery remains the dominant factor of American political, cultural, and social spheres. The library program centers on the articles included in the New York Times Special Sunday Magazine dated August 20, 2019.
