The 1619 Project

Social Justice Zoom Cafe-Project 1619

Beginning in February, Black History Month, the East Shore Social Justice Zoom Café will be leading a Discussion Workshop on the 1619 Project.  The 1619 Project is a collection of historical and analytical articles as well as poetry, and photography documenting the lives of African-Americans from 1619 to the present.

1619 is the year the first Africans were brought to the American British colonies as slaves. 

The Workshop explores how African-American history, begun in slavery, has shaped the lives of generations up to the present and how African Americans have shaped life for ALL Americans, including how they have shaped and influenced our democracy.
