The time for this event has changed to 12:00pm EST

Please join the Pulitzer Center, Howard University School of Law, and the University of Miami School of Law on Wednesday, March 10, at 12:00pm EST for a conversation with Nikole Hannah-Jones, the Pulitzer Prize-winning creator of The 1619 Project.

Hannah-Jones writes for The New York Times Magazine as a domestic correspondent focusing on racial injustice. In addition to the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for Commentary, her work has been honored with numerous awards, including a National Magazine Award, a Peabody Award, and a Polk Award. She attended the University of Notre Dame and graduated with degrees in history and African-American studies before moving on to complete her master's in journalism and mass communication at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. 

This event, the third in a series, is part of The 1619 Project Law School Initiative, a collaboration between the Pulitzer Center and the law schools at Howard University and the University of Miami. The initiative aims to spark frank conversations about the legacy of slavery in legal education. Lesson plans from the initiative focused on law and politics can be found here and include reference to work by Hannah-Jones.

The 1619 Project Law School Initiative modules are designed to fill voids, enhance educational material, and inspire critical thinking, especially about the historical insights and perspectives that are missing in our understanding of contemporary issues.
