The 1619 Project Curriculum: Challenging the historical narrative of U.S. slavery

The 1619 Project, inaugurated with a special issue of The New York Times Magazine, challenges us to reframe U.S. history by marking the year when the first enslaved Africans arrived on Virginia soil as our nation’s foundational date.

The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting has developed reading guides, activities, and other resources to bring The 1619 Project into your classroom.

The 1619 Project: A New York Times Initiative

The 1619 Project is a major initiative from The New York Times observing the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe the country’s history, understanding 1619 as our true founding, and placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of the story we tell ourselves about who we are.
