to episodes covering the systemic inequities of the U.S. healthcare system;
the history of Black land ownership; the artistic genius of Black American
music; and more. This lesson includes time-stamped sections, guiding
questions, and extension activities for each episode. Students will be able
to engage meaningfully with *The 1619 Project* and consider how they can
utilize podcasts and other media to tell their own stories.
Listening Guide
This Independence Day weekend, we reflect on the history, identity, and
potential futures of the United States. *The 1619 Project* creator, Nikole
Hannah-Jones, calls it an endeavor to "fundamentally reshape the way that
we see the American story." In her introductory essay, “The Idea of
America,” 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.’” This
offers reflection questions to explore Hannah-Jones’ essay and is a
starting point to dig more deeply into *our curricular resources for The
1619 Project.
