The 1619 Project | The New York Times
August 13, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$10
Four hundred years ago, on August 20, 1619, a ship carrying more than 20 enslaved Africans arrived in Jamestown. Though America did not even exist yet, their arrival marked its foundation, the beginning of the system of slavery on which the country was built. In August, The New York Times Magazine will observe this anniversary with a special project that examines the many ways the legacy of slavery continues to shape and define life in the United States.
Please join the New York Times on August 13 to launch this project with an evening of conversation and performance at TheTimesCenter, featuring Nikole Hannah-Jones, Wesley Morris, Jamelle Bouie, Tyehimba Jess and more.
Livestream available starting 7 PM ET.
