(Formerly the 1619 Project Discussion Group)
Join us the second Thursday of each month, on Zoom, as we continue to discuss how the legacy of slavery and race remain dominant factors in American political, cultural, and social spheres.
The library program centers on an article packet which serves as the discussion text each month. Past discussion topics included the history of slave laws, policing in America, and Critical Race Theory.
All current packets are available on this website and at any of the Heights Libraries. Previous packets are available as .PDFs in the Materials Tab.
Unpacking 1619 Podcast
Unpacking 1619 features interviews with scholars from around the country in which we unpack topics relating to the 1619 Project and race in America. Hosted by Adult Services Librarian John Piche.
