1619-Present - The Many Consequences of Slavery: The Cost of Historical Injustices (series)
Thursdays, 10:00–11:30am October 22 – December 3 No lecture on November 26 Online $35/series or $10/day pass “The goal of The 1619 Project, a major initiative from The New York Times … is to reframe American history by considering what it would mean to regard 1619 as our nation’s birth year. Doing so requires us to place the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of the story we tell ourselves about who we are as a country.” Editor’s Note - Jake Silverstein. 1619 Project. The New York Times, August 18, 2019, pp. 4-5. The presentations will address the impact of this perspective on our understanding of American history, and the educational, socioeconomic, political, cultural and health dimensions of U.S. society. Further, the OLLI 1619 subcommittee encourages each lecture session attendee to formulate a personal action plan to help resolve the historic dilemmas that will be discussed during the lecture series. Please consider actions that you might take that will have national, state, local and personal significance.
