Read The 1619 Project with Others
Thursdays, 4:00pm-5:00pm on Zoom
(A link will be provided after you register)
Tri-County Unitarian Universalists’ minister, Rev. Cynthia Snavely and lay
leader Cindy Grossman will lead a community book study of The 1619
The 1619 Project is a long-form journalism endeavor developed by Nikole
Hannah-Jones, writers from The New York Times, and The New York Times
Magazine which “aims to reframe the country's history by placing the
consequences of slavery and the contributions of Black Americans at the
very center of the United States' national narrative.”
The book chapters are divided into distinct topics, including Democracy,
Capitalism, Citizenship, Punishment, Medicine, Church, Music, Healthcare,
Progress and Justice. We will discuss one chapter per week. ( No
discussions on April 27 and June 29.)
Although the book has been banned in Florida schools, Nikole Hannah-
Jones did win the Pulitzer Prize for her contribution to this series. Please
come and make up your own mind about the validity of this work.
Participants are asked to try to come to as many weeks as possible. To
register call Rev. Snavely at 240-475-2111 or email CSnavely@uuma.org.
Once registered, you will be sent the zoom link for the weekly sessions.
Registration is free.
