The 1619 Project in 2020: Student Showcase
The 1619 Project, published by the New York Times, retells the history of the U.S. by foregrounding the arrival 401 years ago of enslaved Africans to Virginia. UCI is hosting a month-plus exploration of The 1619 Project, which culminates in the visit of Nikole Hannah-Jones, the Pulitzer Prize winning creator and lead writer of the project. Please join us for these events:
