The 1619 Project

Stay tuned for more details about the topic of this presentation.

The 1619 Project is an ongoing initiative from The New York Times Magazine that began in August 2019, the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe the country’s history by placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of Black Americans at the very center of our national narrative. The AAMI will participate in this project with panel discussions that will feature a variety of community voices, in many cases Cedar Rapids/Eastern Iowa’s own experts on topics being discussed – topics like incarceration, music, democracy, and more.
