*Nikole Hannah-Jones on Reshaping National Memory and The 1619 Project*
<https://pulitzercenter.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=1e0daa892d0fd84e520a9c9af&id=fb4eb20edf&e=f8216b8e89>

This Independence Day weekend arrives in the midst of uprisings against
anti-Black racism, during which many people are reckoning with the history,
identity, and potential futures of the United States.

Nikole Hannah-Jones calls *The 1619 Project *an endeavor to "fundamentally
reshape the way that we see the American story." In her introductory essay,
she writes, "[T]he year 1619 is as foundational to the American story as
1776...black Americans, as much as those men cast in alabaster in the
nation’s capital, are this nation’s true ‘founding fathers.’”

In a new video resource for *The 1619 Project* produced by MediaStorm,
Hannah-Jones discusses her motivations for taking on the project, its
impacts, and her hopes for how it might continue to shape dialogues and
narratives—in the classroom, and beyond. This lesson offers reflection
questions to guide an analysis of the video, and a starting point to dig
more deeply into the full 1619 Project curriculum
