Review of the ‘1619 Project’ from the NYT

There are moments in life when the past, present, and future merge to meet you here, at this moment. The 1619 Project from the New York Times is one of those moments. It is impossible to read this newspaper and magazine and not feel the heft of generational pain, despair, fortitude, and pride converge within you. This collection of pieces of writing, photography, and art will rip you apart, but it’s a necessary breaking. In the effort to push forward we need reminders of from whence we come and why it is imperative that we continue to persevere. It is necessary that those guilty of fore-parents that have committed the most heinous of acts understand that history, grapple with it, and recognize that the very same spirit of hate is still alive today. It is then necessary to do something about it. Healing traumas is a burden that all of us must carry. With that understanding, this is necessary reading. Watch my full review to understand.
