1619 Podcast


“The “”1619 Podcast”” is a production of The New York Times that was created as an extension of the 1619 Project. The 1619 Project is an ongoing initiative that was launched by The New York Times in August 2019, commemorating the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in the English colonies that would later become the United States.

The podcast delves into various aspects of American history, exploring the impact of slavery on the country’s development and highlighting the contributions of Black Americans throughout history. It covers a wide range of topics, including politics, economics, culture, and social issues, all within the context of the legacy of slavery.

The title, “”1619,”” refers to the year when the first enslaved Africans were brought to the English colonies in North America. The podcast aims to provide a deeper understanding of how slavery has shaped the United States and continues to influence contemporary society.”
