“Revealing Histories: a CSRD Summer Institute on The 1619 Project”

Topics will include Black American history, cultural sensitivity, and issues of race, systemic racism, inequity and exclusion, anti-racism and transformative civic engagement.

Participants will examine The 1619 Project* and rich primary documents and archival resources. They will think together about the power of history to transform their understanding of the present and to create more just futures.

Participants will be empowered to engage confidently, have meaningful dialogues and contribute to positive social change. They will be given an opportunity to experience cultural humility and strengthen their respect for cultural differences, become aware of their own biases and transform them. They will be able to bring sensitivity and respect to revelatory histories.

*The 1619 Project was published in The New York Times Magazine in August 2019 to mark the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in colonial America.
