The 1619 Project

The comprehensive 1619 Project informs and challenges us to reframe U.S. history and better understand the hold of institutional racism on our communities.

NEA recently worked with the New York Times to distribute copies of the 1619 Project to educators and activists around the country to help give us a deeper understanding of systemic racism and its impact.

Below please find a link to the New York Times #1619 Project and some resources to guide discussion around this touchstone journalism.

We hope these resources will foster real dialogue around issues of racial justice in education.
