Teaching “The 1619 Project”: a virtual event for educators and librarians

| Local News | Yahoo news

This event is sponsored by the New York Times Education and Library Subscription Program.

What started as a special edition of The New York Times Magazine is now a national cultural phenomenon that has spawned a book, podcast, upcoming documentary series, illustrated children’s book, and educational materials for schools. Its creator, Nikole Hannah-Jones, won a Pulitzer Prize.

“Project 1619” was conceived by Times Magazine correspondent Ms. Hannah-Jones and sparked a heated and polarizing conversation about how American history is taught in schools. Often associated with critical race theory, “Project 1619” has become a subject of controversy in politics and education.

How can teachers use this powerful material and share it with students? How should they respond to calls from critics to ban “Project 1619” and other topics that deal with the history of racial inequity and the experience of black people in America? And how can librarians and educators bring truthful representations of history to their students?

Join Ms. Hannah-Jones and Donnalie Jamnah of the Pulitzer Center’s 1619 Education Network, in conversation with Jake Silverstein, Editor-in-Chief of The New York Times Magazine. Their discussion will be for teachers, administrators, librarians, parents and students looking for answers to these crucial and timely questions.
