Welcome and thank you for your interest in participating in the 1619 Project discussion group. Our 4 session series was originally scheduled to meet bi-weekly on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 pm during the months of November - December. This is an interactive program so participants were asked to prepare for the discussion by reading the material in advance. The plan was to structure our discussions using both small and large group sharing formats, while also offering suggested reflection questions to support focused small group discussion.
Session 1: Tuesday, Nov. 4. Assigned readings can be found here:
How can we challenge what we’ve learned about our country and, by extension, about ourselves? Use the reflection statements to the left to track new information and ideas you learn about in the two essays, as well as questions that arise.
