On the next American Black Journal,
The New York Times Magazine’s “The 1619 Project,” takes a comprehensive look at the start of slavery in America 400 years ago. Stephen talks with two of the initiative’s contributors about how the controversial project reframes U.S. history around the arrival of the first African slave ship in August of 1619. Plus, in light of the recent entertainment partnership between rapper Jay-Z and the NFL, we’ll talk about the concept of “entertainment justice” with music producer, artist and social justice activist Bryce Anderson, aka Bryce Detroit.
