The 1619 Project Survey for Educators

Posted by The Pulitzer Center on July 14, 2020

The 1619 Project launched on August 14, 2019—the 400th anniversary of the first enslaved Africans’ arrival on what would become U.S. soil—with a special issue of The New York Times Magazine and an accompanying curriculum from the Pulitzer Center. Now, nearly one year later, the project has been integrated into classrooms by schools in all 50 states, and continues to proliferate in the form of a podcast, book series, TV/film programming, and more.

“The way that educators have embraced the project has been…the most fulfilling thing to me,” says 1619 Project architect Nikole Hannah-Jones.

Have you used The 1619 Project curriculum in your teaching, or do you intend to? As we plan for the fall, we want to hear from you: What resources are working for you and your students? What additional support and resources would you like? Do you have lessons or student work you would be willing to share with other educators, the Pulitzer Center, and The New York Times? Please take this three-minute survey to help us chart a path forward for bringing 1619 and the history of Black resistance to schools across the country.
