In January we will discuss the first half of "The 1619 Project: A New Origin Story" by Nikole Hannah-Jones. The second half will be discussed in our February meeting.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
The New York Times Magazine’s award-winning “1619 Project” issue reframed our understanding of American history by placing slavery and its continuing legacy at the center of our national narrative. This new book substantially expands on that work, weaving together eighteen essays that explore the legacy of slavery in present-day America with thirty-six poems and works of fiction that illuminate key moments of oppression, struggle, and resistance. The essays show how the inheritance of 1619 reaches into every part of contemporary American society, from politics, music, diet, traffic, and citizenship to capitalism, religion, and our democracy itself.
This is a book that speaks directly to our current moment, contextualizing the systems of race and caste within which we operate today. It reveals long-glossed-over truths around our nation’s founding and construction—and the way that the legacy of slavery did not end with emancipation, but continues to shape contemporary American life.
The DEI Discussion Group is a learning circle, educating ourselves about the US history that we weren't taught in school, the codification of whiteness and white domination in the founding of our country, the neuroscience and effects of bias, and becoming aware of how we may inadvertently perpetuate white dominance.
Starting in January we will begin our journey through the "1619" podcast by The New York Times. We will be discussing episodes 1 & 2 for this meeting.
