Bret Stephens column: The 1619 chronicles – Baltimore Solar

“1619” is the ongoing, Pulitzer Prize-winning audio project from the New York Times about the history of slavery and its modern-day implications, one which inspired schools tochange curriculum in Chicago, Washington D.C., and parts of New York. Led by Nikole Hannah-Jones, the series faced serious opposition from some white historians. While history is often taught from the eyes of the oppressor, The Atlantic’s Adam Serwer counters, “Viewed from the perspective of those historically denied the rights enumerated in America’s founding documents, the story of the country’s great men necessarily looks very different.”
