* Full title: The 1619 Project: A New Origin Story
Edited by Nikole Hannah-Jones, Caitlin Roper, Ilena Silverman, and Jake Silverstein
According to the publisher’s web site, “The New York Times Magazine’s award-winning “1619 Project” issue reframed our understanding of American history by placing slavery and its continuing legacy at the center of our national narrative. This new book substantially expands on that work, weaving together eighteen essays that explore the legacy of slavery in present-day America with thirty-six poems and works of fiction that illuminate key moments of oppression, struggle, and resistance.” Source: http://www.randomhousebooks.com/books/9780593230572/.
