The Original Sin of 1619  

Journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones led a team of black journalists, writers and poets to create The 1619 Project, a deep and thoughtful look into the 400th anniversary of the beginning of slavery in this country. But a lot of the response has been predictably critical. Maria and Julio are joined by ITT All-Stars, Wajahat Ali, New York Times contributing op-ed writer and contributor with CNN, and Dr. Eddie Glaude, James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor at Princeton University, to discuss the significance of this project and its response. They also talk about the Antifa movement and Israel’s decision to ban Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar from visiting.   Help In The Thick grow by telling our advertisers a bit about you as a member of the ITT community! Take this QUICK survey
