“The 1619 Project is an ongoing initiative from The New York Times Magazine that began in August 2019, the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe the country’s history by placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of our national narrative.”

We are looking for teens going into grades 7-12 who want to connect with other people their age and help the library with their input and volunteer work (yes, even virtual volunteer work).
