Let’s Talk about…
The 1619 Project
with Prof. Dexter Gabriel (Assistant Professor, History & Africana Studies, UConn)
March 23, 2022, 2:00pm. Homer Babbidge Library, 4-209.
This is an honors event.
The CLAS Dean’s office and UCHI invite UConn undergraduates to participate in a discussion group about the 1619 Project—an initiative to rethink the history of the United States led by Pulitzer-prize winning journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones and the New York Times Magazine. Professor Dexter Gabriel will lead the discussion and help guide students in this important dialogue about reframing national history, the legacies of American slavery, and the controversies surrounding the 1619 Project. The first 40 students to register will receive a free ebook of The 1619 Project: A New Origin Story, and all participants are invited to attend Nikole Hannah-Jones’ talk at the Student Union Theater on March 30th.
