The 1619 Project: New Video and Interview with Nikole Hannah-Jones

Posted by The Pulitzer Center on May 26, 2020

The 1619 Project of the New York Times Magazine, an in-depth study led by Nikole Hannah-Jones of the over 400-year legacy of American slavery, was awarded the 2020 International Center of Photography (ICP) Infinity Award for Online Platform and New Media.

In conjunction with the award announcement, a video by MediaStorm featuring an interview with Hannah-Jones details the development of the project and its use by educators across the country. The Pulitzer Center, The 1619 Project’s education partner, has published a reading guide, a historical terms and events index, and lesson plans to bring The 1619 Project into classrooms.
