University of Illinois Press 1619 Reading Lists
August 2019 marked the 400th anniversary of enslaved people arriving in America. To commemorate the anniversary, The New York Times Magazine launched the 1619 Project, a major initiative led by Nikole Hannah-Jones, with the goal of re-framing our understanding of the impact of slavery and recognizing the contributions of Black Americans to American democracy. In 2019, we created reading lists that spoke to key themes covered by the project. You can find them here.
