Description

In August of 1619, a ship carrying more than 20 enslaved Africans arrived in the English colony of Virginia. America was not yet America, but this was the moment it began. No aspect of the country that would be formed here has been untouched by the 250 years of slavery that followed. On the 400th anniversary of this fateful moment, it is time to tell the story.

Garbage that has only sent negativity and destruction into this country. Zero benefit from spewing this into our culture except for the financial gain from those involved.

this series struck a cord in me. there are so many injustices our people have faced and we still here. they will not break us. we must give to causes that support our people. we need more black owned banks and lending institutions. and we need to support black owned businesses. sick of seeing people benefiting off of us.

The 1619 project is rejected from many if not all U.S. historians. Please take the time and educate yourself. The NYT wont even change the falsified content when shown proper 1st person sources. The 1619 project is an opinion piece.
