The 1619 Project

January 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Monday, repeating until February 24, 2020

Curious about what your kids or grandkids are learning about the effect of slavery on American history and American sensibilities? This past summer, the New York Times Magazine published The 1619 Project, a powerful issue on chattel slavery in America. This publication is now being widely used as the basis for a related curriculum in high schools and college classrooms. The series build on research by distinguished black academics, journalists, and writers. We will discuss its essays, short prose, poetry and associated podcasts. We will also explore how the recent scholarship and viewpoints it contains might impact the contemporary church in America and, in particular, Plymouth Church.

Free; please register here.
