Join us for an engaging discussion about the importance of teaching Black history, the national impact of The 1619 Project, and the implications of culturally responsive learning for teachers and students. The 1619 Project was published in the New York Times Magazine in August 2019 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the first Africans who were brought to the American colonies and sold into slavery.
