New Curricular Resources: The 1857 Project

Posted by Pulitzer Center on October 20, 2020

Inspired by The 1619 Project from the New York Times Magazine, The 1857 Project is a special issue of the Gateway Journalism Review that chronicles the wrenching history of racial injustice in St. Louis, Missouri, and Illinois. The project’s articles and analyses connect events such as the Dred Scott decision in 1857 to contemporary issues such as redlining, underfunded schools, and discrimination.

These curricular resources, including reading guides, lesson plans, and extension activities, were developed by St. Louis-based educator and instructional coach Christina Sneed. Learn more about how Sneed worked with students at University City High School last spring on activities inspired by the The 1619 Project at this link:
