I started this one in February with the intention of finishing it then for Black History Month; didn't make that deadline so then I thought I could finish it in March for International Day for Elimination of Racial Discrimination, and I still couldn't finish!

I finally finished it in April. It was good, and I learned a lot - however it was a bit uneven, which I think is to be expected with a project like this - different chapters written by different authors. The chapters were organized around different issues like citizenship, self-defense, inheritance. Prior to each chapter there was a short historical snippet and a poem or short fiction piece.

It took me a while to read because there is a lot of painful history here and honestly not a lot of hope for change. I'm glad I read it and I have a lot more reading to do in this area.

Gr 2–5—An illustrated work on the 1619 Project for young readers, this adaptation begins with a school assignment
and quickly immerses readers in beauty and terror. This stunning work offers a glimpse into the history of the Black
American experience before and after the slave trade; the elevated language and breathtaking artwork will have a
lasting effect.

I took my time with this book; reading a chapter or two then spending some time thinking about. So much information to unpack; so many new conclusions to consider. Facts are always open to interpretation, new understandings, and disagreements about their importance, but they must in the first instance be brought to light. That is the greatest success of The 1619 Project. Moreover, the writing is beautiful and informative throughout; the poems are moving.
