Thank you

Here is so much information left out of school textbooks which presents a clearer view of slavery and the weaknesses of white leaders at the time to abolish it and to treat Black people as human beings deserving of equal rights. As a white person in this country, I believe we need to hear the whole truth in order to heal these wounds. We have never heard the whole truth of the inhumanity of slavery and how much of our country has been built on the backs of enslaved people. This podcast gets us much closer to the truth than we have ever been. Thank you.

Please don’t stop!!!

We need more. So wonderfully told. Also who knew what Yacht Rock was until I found it here. Our true history needs to be told and taught in our elementary, middle and high school’s core curriculum in public education.Brilliant job, please keep going.

Love this pod cast

I am only midway through the 3rd podcast and I had to stop and write a review to say thank you for such a wonderful educational podcast. The episodes are wonderfully done and provide so much historical content that I never knew but all makes sense. Thank you for doing all this research and compiling all the stories and putting it in such understandable context. It’s wonderful and I highly recommend it.

Lies lies and more lies!!

The NYT is trying to erase the true history of America and put forward a fake narrative of America being build on racism. They don’t want us to know the truth about our history. This podcast is appalling, fake news and it’s sad to see people eating it up.

Excellent podcast very informative

I have learned so much. I am a middle aged white man who grew up in Connecticut. I did realize the extent of racism that still exists and how it impacts our African American population today. We, white people, have a lot to learn and much work to do to truly achieve racial equality.

1619 took me to so many places in my memories of being African American in America. I connected my families to the stories told, especially dealing the loss of land and healthcare inequities. This podcast needs to be heard by every one in the US to see that systemic racism, trauma of slavery and historical inequities of African Americans that still impact today. Thank you so much for the genuine research, perspective and storytelling of this series.

Garbage

This has all been debunked. Even the author behind the 1619 project admitted that it’s not meant to be historically accurate.

To start, America was founded a little less than 160 years after 1619.

Stellar

Thank you for finally telling this untold history. To all of those saying this is factually incorrect: ya wrong. Look up presidential records. Look up financial statistics based on race. It’s all true. Wake up America

Entertaining

This is an entertaining yet fictional (or at a minimum not historically accurate - host agrees) collection of stories about America. I did like the episode on music. I was taken aback by the small-minded and provincial nature of some of the commentary but am used to New Yorkers not having been actually exposed to life outside of the five boroughs.

A good start

It would have been good to note during Episode 4 and 5 about the Homestead Act for The South was in play until 1866, but black people weren’t told about it and therefore didn’t get the 165 acres offered in the Act. Also, the Southern Contingent of the Democratic Party who forced federal laws to be managed locally. The book when Affirmative Action was White speaks to these timelines. Merge the knowledge.
