The Capital Research Center debunks the fake history of the 1619 Project, which has been embedded in school curriculums across America. CRC writes (abridged):
The Architects of Woke series takes aim at far-left postmodernist and Marxist thinkers and activists responsible for the spread of identity politics from college campuses to society at large.
The sixth episode, The 1619 Project’s Fake History, covers the New York Times Magazine’s 1619 Project. Directed by Nikole Hannah-Jones, the project attempts to reframe our understanding of American history by alleging the central event in the founding of the United States was the first importation of enslaved Africans to Virginia in 1619 and not the Declaration of Independence in 1776.
The project has been notably criticized by esteemed historians for its factual errors
Despite this, schools across the nation have embedded the 1619 Project into their curriculums, perhaps endangering our nation’s understanding of its founding for generations to come.
