The 1619 Project

A selection of images from 1619 Project. The 1619 Project is an ongoing initiative from The New York Times Magazine that 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.

These landscape images show historic sits of slave-trading activity throughout the United States.

Developed by Nikole Hannah-Jones, writers from the New York Times, and the New York Times Magazine. Researched and written by historian Anne C. Bailey.
