Howard Law School hosts ‘1619 Project Read-Along’

Howard University’s law school hosted a “1619 Project Read-Along” on Sunday with Nikole Hannah-Jones, a professor and major contributor to the New York Times’ project.

“This event will focus on ‘Democracy,’ chapter 1 of ‘The 1619 Project: A New Origin Story,’ as the first of six culminating events of ‘The 1619 Project Read Along: A Classroom Without Walls,’ launched in October 2022,” a news release from Howard, where Hannah-Jones teaches, stated.

The initiative makes the claim that America began when slaves arrived in Virginia in 1619 and that the Revolutionary War was fought to preserve slavery, a claim questioned by scholars such as Mary Grabar.
