The National Education Association worked with the New York Times to distribute copies of the 1619 Project to educators and activists around the country to help give us a deeper understanding of systemic racism and its impact.

Below please find a link to the New York Times #1619 Project and some resources to guide discussion around this touchstone journalism.

We hope these resources will foster real dialogue around issues of racial justice in education.
