    The New York Times’ 1619 Project — a curriculum that makes the fantastical claim that a primary cause of the Revolutionary War was the colonists’ desire to protect slavery — has been adopted in 3,500 classrooms across all 50 states.For this reason, some of the nation’s most renowned historians have called for The Times to correct this and other factual errors.The Pulitzer Center, which is partnering with The Times to promote The 1619 Project, recounted in its 2019 annual report, “Good journalism, innovative educational resources, and deep community engagement are absolutely essential to bridging the divisions that threaten to rip our democracy apart.

    Princetons Sean Wilentz is one of five historians who sent a letter to the NY Times last month requesting that the paper address factual errors in the 1619 Project. In response, the NY Times published the letter along with a lengthy response denying that any corrections were necessary. Today, Wilentz has written a piece for the Atlantic in which he addresses three false claims in the 1619 Project in more detail. He begins with the claim by lead-author Nikole Hannah-Jones that one of the primary reasons the colonists decided to declare their independence from Britain was because they wanted...

    The 1619 Project on slavery is a program organized byThe New York Timesin 2019 under the auspices of one of its chief staff writers, Nikole Hanna-Jones, with the goal of re-examining the legacy ofslavery in the United States -- and timed for the 400th anniversary of thearrival in America of the first enslaved people from West Africa. The goal of the project is to reframe the countrys history, and to establish 1619 as true a founding of America as was the formal 1776 creation of the United States of America. The essays range in scope from attempting to prove...

    We write as historians to express our strong reservations about important aspects of The 1619 Project. The project is intended to offer a new version of American history in which slavery and white supremacy become the dominant organizing themes. The Times has announced ambitious plans to make the project available to schools in the form of curriculums and related instructional material. We applaud all efforts to address the enduring centrality of slavery and racism to our history. Some of us have devoted our entire professional lives to those efforts, and all of us have worked hard to advance them. Raising...

    The title is one that I had to create since this is taken from Beck's radio show. Did you know that American history is divided between those who brought to the New World Kindness, Good Relations, and Freedom? Versus those who "came over to rape this land" and who brought Misery, Slavery, Abuse, and eventually Cannibalism? Well you can learn all about it from master historian Glenn Beck, who is planning to share this Forgotten History with lucky Americans in his coming "Restoring the Covenant" Crusade.

    WSJ ^ | 12/16/2019 | Elliot Kaufman
    So wrong in so many ways is how Gordon Wood, the Pulitzer Prize-winning historian of the American Revolution, characterized the New York Timess 1619 Project. James McPherson, dean of Civil War historians and another Pulitzer winner, said the Times presented an unbalanced, one-sided account that left most of the history out. Even more surprising than the criticism from these generally liberal historians was where the interviews appeared: on the World Socialist Web Site, run by the Trotskyist Socialist Equality Party. The 1619 Project was launched in August with a 100-page spread in the Timess Sunday magazine. It intends to reframe...

    City Journal ^ | December 3, 2019 | Max Eden
    ... Historians, journalists, and politicians frequently accuse one another of twisting history to advance political agendasand the accused parties always deny the charge. By contrast, the 1619 Projects curriculum openly encourages such historical revisionism. Its reading guide aims to ensure that students dont miss core partisan talking points. Jamelle Bouies Undemocratic Democracy, for example, an essay that draws a line from John Calhouns nullification philosophy to Eric Cantors hardball budget-negotiation tactics, asks: How do nineteenth-century U.S. political movements aimed at maintaining the right to enslave people manifest in contemporary political parties? Students must not miss the point that everything that...

    Did I return from vacation to an alternate 2019? Did Biff actually succeed with the DeLorean after all? Of all the strange outcomes to pop up in this version of the universe, “RNC endorses World Socialist Website’s credibility” was somewhere around the millionth rank of possibilities. “And they’d be correct” ranked around the billionth mark. Earlier today, RNC spokesperson Liz Harrington issued the strange-yet-true endorsement of World Socialist Website’s deep dive into the integrity of the New York Times — and especially its “1619 Project” fantasy that might get projected into schools around the country: Elizabeth Harrington ✔ @LizRNC The...

    Top Historians Slam New York Times 1619 Project As It Infiltrates Public School Curriculum Multiple historians slammed New York Times Magazines 1619 Project, calling the reframing of history false and disturbing, as others are pushing for it to continue being added into public school curriculum. The 1619 Project is made up of multiple stories and poems about racism and slavery. It suggests Americas true founding was when the first slaves arrived in 1619 and aims to reframe the countrys history. Written by journalists and opinion writers, the project has already received criticism from many conservatives. Historian and Brown University professor...

    The NY Times 1619 Project was a sprawling effort earlier this year to convince Americans that slavery was part of the DNA of America. Made up of various pieces by different authors, the 1619 Project seemed to promote an idea that matched current far left sentiment about the importance of identity with an underlying anti-capitalism. The Times is now promoting the Project for inclusion in high school curricula, so its likely it will be with us for some time. But where did all of this material come from?One site has done some important work looking into the Times Project...

    Q. What was your initial reaction to the 1619 Project? A. Well, I didnt know anything about it until I got my Sunday paper, with the magazine section entirely devoted to the 1619 Project. Because this is a subject Ive long been interested in I sat down and started to read some of the essays. Id say that, almost from the outset, I was disturbed by what seemed like a very unbalanced, one-sided account, which lacked context and perspective on the complexity of slavery, which was clearly, obviously, not an exclusively American institution, but existed throughout history. And slavery in...

    American Thinker ^ | 11/06/2019 | Richard Moss
    With the launching of the New York Times’ “1619 Project,” the paper of record seeks to reframe American history.  Formerly we had foolishly assumed the birth of the nation to be July 4, 1776, with the writing of the Declaration of Independence.  But no, the paper of record has another date in mind.  It turns out to be 1619, with the importing of the first African slaves to America.  That moment, the Times believes, more accurately depicts the founding of the nation and its underlying precepts.  We now learn that our Declaration, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights,...

    Last week, Democrats held their first true presidential debate. With the field winnowed down to 10 candidates -- three of them actual contenders for the nomination -- only one moment truly stood out. That moment came not from Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders but from a candidate desperate for attention: Beto O'Rourke. O'Rourke ran in 2018 for a Senate seat in Texas and lost in shockingly narrow fashion to incumbent Republican Sen. Ted Cruz. But his persona at the time was more Biden than Bernie: He ran as a unifying quasi-moderate, an Obama-esque figure determined to bring Americans...

    A sign commemorating the arrival of the first Africans is displayed at Chesapeake Bay, in Hampton, Va., August 24, 2019. (Michael A. McCoy/Reuters) It didnt begin or end in the United States. The same people most obsessed with slavery seem to have little interest in the full scope of its history. There has been an effort for decades now although with new momentum lately, as exemplified by the New York Times 1619 project to identify the United States and its founding with slavery. To the extent that this campaign excavates uncomfortable truths about our history and underlines...

    The New York Times 1619 Project is being lauded by the media and many Democrats for what they believe is a long overdue discovery of the hidden truth of America -- that it was founded on white racism and the enslavement of blacks, and that even today the belief in white racial supremacy is so endemic to America that its a part of our national DNA. The Project will likely be used to advance policies in Washington, D.C. and throughout the country that purport to remedy this alleged injustice. Democratic presidential candidate and U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (D-Cal.) has already...

    The New York Times has begun a major initiative, the "1619 Project," to observe the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe American history so that slavery and the contributions of black Americans explain who we are as a nation. Nikole Hannah-Jones, staff writer for The New York Times Magazine wrote the lead article, "America Wasn't a Democracy, Until Black Americans Made It One." She writes, "Without the idealistic, strenuous and patriotic efforts of black Americans, our democracy today would most likely look very different -- it might not be a democracy at all." There...
