The 1619 Project: Tracing Black History Through The Words Of Writers and Poets

This is an exceptional undertaking and collection of poems and short stories that provide a walkthrough black history by these writers from the slave ships to Crispus Attucks, to Gabriel Prosser's rebellion, to the disrespected black soldier after World War 2, to the 4 little girls murdered in Birmingham, Alabama. This live reading is one that shouldn't be missed. Please make a contribution to my fundraising drive to keep this channel of information flowing.

We asked 16 writers to bring consequential moments in African​ American​ history to life. Here are their poems and stories from Project 1619 being read by The Blackman Who Reads Aloud.
