On Sunday, August 18th, The 1619 Project was published by The New York Times. The goal of this project is 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. Join us as we host our own 1619 Brunch to fellowship, read, and discuss the captivating histories featured in the 1619 Project from Nikole Hannah-Jones and the New York Times.

What

Coffee in Common is a monthly series co-hosted by the The St. Petersburg Alumnae Chapter of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and League of Women Voters of the St. Petersburg Area. This month’s topic: Media Literacy: Racism, Politics and the News

These free and public events are for thoughtful, open-minded white women and women of color concerning the prescient issues of the day, to include: white privilege, racism, and white supremacy. This series seeks to explore the intersection of politics and race by educating audiences about history, lived experience, and facilitating important, and often uncomfortable, discussion about race.

Coffee will be provided to participants as they learn about the monthly topic. Following the presentation, facilitators will guide discussion on the topic, its relevance in today’s world, and honest conversations about the deeply-rooted effects of institutional and systemic racism in our community.

It is through open-minded, free, and safe discussions among women and the community that we can forge forward together in the struggle with knowledge and power.
