The 1619 Project


The 1619 Project: Born on the Water



Join Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist and New York Times bestselling author Nikole Hannah-Jonesin conversation with Rashad Robinson, President of Color Of Change. This live (and live-streamed) discussion will focus on how The 1619 Project has become a catalyst for America’s most recent wave of challenges and bans, how Color Of Change is fighting against these legislative push backs that threaten our democracy, and how everyone can involve themselves in the fight to keep real American history in our schools.



The mission of One World, a division of the Random House Publishing Group, is to provide a home for authors—novelists, essayists, memoirists, poets, journalists, thinkers, activists, and creative artists unconstrained by genre—who seek to challenge the status quo, subvert dominant narratives, and give us new language to understand our past, present, and future.

Color Of Change, the nation’s largest online racial justice organization, helps move decision-makers into corporations and government to create a more human and less hostile world for Black people in America.

The Greene Space channels the collective genius of New York City to create forward-looking live art, theater, and journalism that sparks change
