We did it! Thank you.
Appreciation and gratitude for participating in our 1619 Project book club
What an amazing experience. Thank you for participating in our book club on The 1619 Project. Thank you for closely reading the book, deeply taking in its ideas, and authentically discussing the text with other thoughtful people. In addition, thank you to all the facilitators who took good care to support productive conversation.
Here are the two questions we focused on yesterday. I encourage us to come back to these questions again and again.
What did this book tell you?
What are you going to do now?
If you’re moved, I invite you to share your thinking by leaving a comment.
A few next steps…
I’d love your feedback. What did you value? What would you change next time? (There’s no Google Form. You can email me or let’s chat on the phone.)
Thanks to your contributions, we donated $594 to The 1619 Freedom School. Here’s how to cancel your paid subscription.
Who knows, maybe we’ll do this again? Anyone interested in reading and discussing The Warmth of Other Suns, by Isabel Wilkerson? Other ideas?
One last time, thank you for saying yes to this experience. I hope the words of Nikole Hannah-Jones, Dorothy Roberts, Khalil Gibran Muhammad, Leslie Alexander, Michelle Alexander, Tiya Miles, Matthew Desmond, Jamelle Bouie, Martha S. Jones, Carol Anderson, Bryan Stevenson, Trymaine Lee, Linda Villarosa, Anthea Butler, Wesley Morris, Jeneen Interlandi, Kevin M. Kruse, and Ibram X. Kendi got into your brain, body, and soul such that you feel you understand what you need to do next.
