An exhibit of the NYTimes’ 1619 Project opened on March 1st at the downtown library. The WCDP Book Club spent some time with this immense project, looking at the history and the pervasive legacy of enslavement and the slave trade in American life. The author of the project, Nikole Hannah-Jones, will return to speak in Ann Arbor on April 6th.

A literary timeline featuring 40 panels of headlines and all 400 essays in the New York Times 1619 Project will be exhibited in the downtown Ann Arbor District Library lobby.
