An Evening with Nikole Hannah-Jones – Truth, History, and the 1619 Project

Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Nikole Hannah-Jones will discuss her groundbreaking 1619 Project, which re-examined the legacy of slavery in the United States from the year the first enslaved Africans arrived in Virginia. She is the editor of the New York Times bestselling book The 1619 Project: A New Origin Story, published in 2021, a collection of essays, poems, and works of fiction that expands on the themes of the original project. A book signing will immediately follow the event.

Themes

  • The 1619 Project asserts, among other things, that patriotism includes honest criticism and accountability to our higher ideals. Do you agree? Why or why not?
  • This project has expanded to include a collection of creative writing and essays, along with the historical journalism of the original work. How can artistic expression and nonfiction research support each other? How can each have an impact that the other might not? 
  • History is something that each of us has our own relationship with. What role does history play in your education and worldview?
This event is suitable for ages 14 and older.
