The 1619 Project

Published by USC Bedrosian Center on

This is the last episode of the Bedrosian Bookclub in this incarnation, it’s been a blast.

We discuss the importance of The 1619 Project, the book, the project, and it’s impact on our political discourse. Why should we pay attention to history, how does the historical narrative of a country affect the way we face the future?

Aubrey Hicks is joined by Yesenia Hunter, LaVonna Lewis, Jen Bravo, and David Sloane in a conversation on the meaning and joy in the The 1619 Project: A New Origin Story.

Follow Aubrey on Twitter @AubreyHi for a new book club announcement soon! Catch up on past episodes in the meantime!

Thanks to all the listeners, to all our guests (past and present), and to all the authors who help us think about the world we find ourselves awed by every day.
