    Nikole Hannah-Jones, the non-historian behind the widely discredited New York Times “1619 Project,” will be receiving coronavirus relief funds from a New Jersey library to cover her speaking fees. Maplewood Library is one of 200 libraries to receive a grant “for libraries affected by the pandemic” from the American Library Association’s American Rescue Plan. The funding came from President Joe Biden’s “American Rescue Plan.” “The Library has always made a conscious effort to provide programming that expand awareness of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Accessibility. The grant will allow the Library to host a speaker who exemplifies these core values.” Hannah-Jones'...

    Nikole Hannah-Jones, 1619 Project creator and professor, said Wednesday on the CNN+ show “Who’s Talking” that parents were wrong when they complained about her work claiming America was founded as a racist country. Wallace said, “What’s your response when people say that you’re saying the country’s racist and that this is a central part and making us feel, making them, kids, feel bad about it. Are you saying parents are wrong?”

    Chris Wallace got into a heated exchange with “1619 Project” author and New York Times reporter Nikole Hannah-Jones, who told him that the generation that fought in World War II “brutally suppressed” black people. Hannah-Jones, who said the US is a country “founded on racism,” got pushback from Wallace in response to her claim that the “Greatest Generation” that fought in World War II “brutally suppressed democracy” by denying African Americans the right to vote in the US. During his CNN+ show, Wallace read aloud a passage from the “1619 Project” — the controversial, Pulitzer Prize-winning series from the New...

    New York Times Magazine reporter and founder of the controversial 1619 Project Nikole Hannah-Jones was sharply mocked by critics over the weekend for falsely claiming that Europe was "not a continent." The left-wing writer took to Twitter Sunday to make the odd claim, appearing driven by others' concerns over the ongoing invasion of Ukraine by the Russian military. She also referred to such alarm over people that "appear White" as a racial "dog whistle.

    In the preface to the recently published bestselling hardcover edition of The 1619 Project: A New Origin Story Project creator Nikole Hannah-Jones uses an incident from 2015 to demonstrate what she claims is a need for The 1619 Project. The incident involved Roni Dean-Burren who was alerted by her teenage son to a caption in his geography textbook that read, “The Atlantic Slave Trade between the 1500s and 1800s brought millions of workers from Africa to the Southern United States to work on agricultural plantations.” The number of Africans brought not only to the Southern United States but to all...

    New York Times journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones blasted the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday for taking a get-tough stance on New York shoplifting — dismissing the crime wave as no big deal and suggesting that the longtime liberal activist was now backing the “carceral state.” Hannah-Jones, who spearheaded the controversial “1619 Project,” made the comments after Sharpton called on Mayor Eric Adams to stop surging thefts in the wake of The Post’s exclusive story of a Trader Joe’s shoplifter who made off with 10 steaks. “This drumbeat for continued mass incarceration is really horrific to watch,” Hannah-Jones tweeted. “A person stealing...
  • 1619 Project Author Gets Historical Facts Wrong

    Nikole Hannah-Jones is the New York Times Magazine reporter who wrote the 1619 Project which is being used in many schools across the country. The 1619 Project postulates that America began in 1619, when the first black slaves were brought here---not 1776, when the founders declared independence. Hannah-Jones made an historical faux pas in a tweet the other day, in which she said that the U.S. Civil War began in 1865. She later apologized, claiming that her tweet was just “poorly worded.” She said she knows the conflict that ultimately ended slavery in America began in 1861 and ended in...

    On November 9, the New York Times published a new defense of the 1619 Project by Jake Silverstein, editor-in-chief of the New York Times Magazine (“The 1619 Project and the Long Battle Over U.S. History”). Silverstein’s purpose was to prepare public opinion for the release of a book version of the project titled The 1619 Project: A New Origin Story, which was released on November 16. The original magazine edition, masterminded by Times staff writer Nikole Hannah-Jones, suffered devastating criticism after its release in August 2019—criticism that began with the WSWS. Silverstein has staked his reputation on the 1619 Project....

    Howard University journalism Professor Nikole Hannah-Jones quickly took to spreading falsehoods about Kyle Rittenhouse after his verdict. A Kenosha County, Wisconsin jury on Friday found Rittenhouse not guilty on all counts stemming from his August 2020 killing of two people and wounding a third who attacked him during a riot. In response to the verdict, Hannah-Jones, who touted her Pulitzer Prize award when applying for a journalism teaching job at the University of North Carolina, repeated falsehoods about the facts of the case. “Even if you feel the jury got it right for legal reasons, what kind of person are...

    New York Post ^ | September 28, 202 | David Marcus
    Like a sitcom in its death throes jumping the proverbial shark, the cancel-culture movement is plunging into a humiliating depth of inanity. This weekend, video emerged from a person called Frederick Joseph, a regular practitioner of “man on the street put-up jobs,” showing a confrontation with a white woman named Emma Sarley. Sarley supposedly told Joseph, who is black, to “go back to [his] hood.” Or at least that’s what he says. She doesn’t say this on the video. The familiar fracas ensued: Social-media mobs assembled, and quickly Sarley was fired from her job. But what happened next was a...

In a 2019 podcast with Ezra Klein of Vox and The New York Times, Hannah-Jones was asked whether there were candidates or places that she thought had a "viable and sufficiently ambitious integration agenda." Hannah-Jones responded that while she is not an expert on race relations internationally, she believed the most "equal" and "multiracial" country in...

    Creator of the New York Times' 1619 Project Nikole Hannah-Jones has dramatically rejected the University of North Carolina's offer of tenured position and will be accepting a role at Howard University instead. Hannah-Jones announced Tuesday she will become a member of the historically black university's Cathy Hughes School of Communication and will also lead its newly created Center for Journalism and Democracy to train the next generation of African-American reporters. One week ago, trustees at UNC-Chapel Hill approved Hannah-Jones' tenure, capping weeks of tension that began when her application was halted because she did not come from a 'traditional academic-type...

    Trustees of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have voted to grant tenure to New York Times writer and author of the divisive “1619 Project” Nikole Hannah-Jones, amid backlash over her “unfactual and biased” work.

The vote comes one day before Hannah-Jones had originally been set to start working as the Knight Chair in Race and Investigative Journalism at the University of North Carolina (UNC)’s Hussman School of Journalism and Media.

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and fellow Republicans are demanding Pres. Biden’s Education Department block a planned history education proposal that invokes the 1619 Project. "Americans do not need or want their tax dollars diverted from promoting the principles that unite our nation toward promoting radical ideologies meant to divide us," McConnell wrote. “In order to truly be antiracist, you also have to truly be anti-capitalist…the origins of racism cannot be separated from the origins of capitalism.

On one side is Nikole Hannah-Jones...creator of the Times’ 1619 Project. She won the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for an extended essay, but some of her claims were debunked by historians and her push for rewriting American history is cited as a reason why she should not get tenure.

    The arguments made by conservatives skeptical of critical race theory need to be addressed and met on their actual merits.The Washington Post’s Christine Emba claims conservative opposition to critical race theory has less to do with intellectual concerns and more to do with emotivism and fear. She accuses conservatives of “disguising” their “discomfort with racial reconsideration as an intellectual critique,” asserting conservative skepticism of critical race theory reflects a “psychological defense, not a rational one.” The irony, however, is that Emba’s argument relies on a textbook logical fallacy.That fallacy is the ad hominem, and more specifically “bulverism,” a term coined...

Hannah-Jones had been announced as a Knight Chair in Race and Investigative Journalism last month.

    Nikole Hannah-Jones, the controversial founder of the 1619 Project, has lost her alma mater’s offer for tenure and is instead under consideration for a fixed five-year contract as a professor of practice. NC Policy Watch reported on the change Wednesday amid a wave of criticism of her work. According to the outlet, the University of North Carolina’s board of trustees decided not to approve Hannah-Jones’ tenure – which effectively translates into a career-long appointment – despite support from faculty. Susan King, dean of the UNC Hussman School of Journalism and Media, reportedly called the decision “disappointing” and said she was...
