Do You Believe That The 1619 Project Should Be Incorporated Into School Curriculums?

Here’s the Scoop

The 1619 Project, a historical narrative that reframes American history around the year when the first enslaved Africans arrived on American soil, has ignited a cultural firestorm.

Proponents hail it as a long-overdue reckoning with America’s original sin of slavery, while critics decry it as an attempt to rewrite history through a lens of division and ideological bias.

This Pulitzer Prize-winning work, led by New York Times journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones, has been proposed to be part of educational curriculums, aiming to cast the legacy of slavery as the central thread of American history.

Opponents argue that this perspective undermines the foundational principles of the nation and paints the United States in a relentlessly negative light.

As schools across the country consider integrating the 1619 Project into their history classes, we ask you: Should this controversial interpretation of America’s past be a cornerstone of our children’s education?

Does it represent a necessary step towards an inclusive historical narrative, or is it a dangerous revisionism that threatens to indoctrinate the youth with a skewed vision of America?

Your opinion matters. Vote now: Yes or No to the 1619 Project in schools.

    It is important to note that america did not exist as a country,…we were still a British colony and the Brit’s allowed and were huge into the slavery trade. When our founding fathers began deliberating our constitution many were adamantly opposed to the institution of slavery.

    The 1619 project is riddled with outright lies; half truths and, misconceptions! African tribes as well as Arab slave traders deserve most of the blame for the Trans-Atlantic slave trade, followed by Portugal and Spain!

      Everyone’s ancestors were enslaved at some point and everyone’s family has had to find a way to heal or not…

        and that healing happens when we first tell the truth and admit that what our ancestors did was wrong.

    People need to quit reliving the past and look forward! Let’s leave the past alone! You can’t change what’s already happened! Mistakes were made by people who no longer exist! We gotta let it go!!!
