A New Origin Story with Nikole Hannah-Jones

The New York Times Magazine's 1619 Project shattered common narratives about the founding of the United States and the profound history, impact and influence of slavery and race in America. Journalist and Howard University professor Nikole Hannah-Jones, the project's creator, is back two years later with a new book that's an expansion of the project. Brittany and Eric dissect the book, which features essays, poetry and photographs. And they chat with Nikole about how the book is both a reframing of narrative and a testament to the ancestors.
