The 1619 Project: A New Origin Story
By Nikole Hannah-Jones (Creator)

"This is a book that speaks directly to our current moment, contextualizing the systems of race and caste within which we operate today.

"In the business world, incident-driven, company position statements on Black Lives Matter or Stop Asian Hate are not proxies for the heavy lifting that will penetrate and sustain a shift in the status quo. Advancing racial equity to disrupt institutional racism requires more than a company-wide memo or a tab on a corporate website."
