This will be our 3rd 1619 Project discussion!

If you missed the first two, this is your chance to experience the deep and rewarding conversations that are sure to take place.

On Sunday, August 18th, 2019, The 1619 Project was published by Nikole Hannah-Jones and The New York Times.

The goal of this project was for our nation to re-examine the legacy of slavery in the United States and its timely release marked the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first enslaved people from West Africa.

Since its publication, readers all across the nation have hosted 1619 Brunches to read and discuss The 1619 Project.

Each discussion has been one to remember and space is limited, so register now!
