    Truths I Wish I Knew Sooner About American Slavery

    Until listening to this podcast, my thoughts only scratched the surface as to why American slavery was treated as a long-gone aside in my history textbooks. Now that I have taken it upon myself through college courses and free time to learn about slavery’s intricacies, I know it’s legacy is inescapable. Every facet of American life, from the mere presence of Black bodies, to the slave-labor economy that America was built upon and continues to operate on today was affected. Nikole Hannah-Jones’ remark on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, explains exactly why America’s dirty truth remains such: “We need to believe as a country that our founding was pure. That yes, you know, we had some troubles including holding 500,000 people in bondage but that largely we were a nation founded to be exceptional and these majestic ideas, and that our founders, though complicated men, were men who were righteous. But when you argue that our founders were, many of them very hypocritical, and that you can’t just simply overlook the fact that slavery was a motivation.”

    Great little podcast

    I am relatively new to podcasts and am intrigued by American history- especially black history because I grew up in a small town in northern Wisconsin and we were never really taught much about American history from the view of black folks. Thank you for this- I hope you make more!

    Enlightening podcast

    This was an excellent podcast! It taught me a lot about racism and how it has developed and morphed over the centuries. I hope they can continue with more episodes!!

    Disappointed

    Good thing I knew my history before I listened to this. I am an African immigrant and I am not a victim.

    Revisionist History

    Serious historians have poked major holes in the NYT’s 1619 Project. Read a few of the critiques from well-regarded academics before accepting this revisionist version of history. Yes, slavery was evil and wrong.

    Waste

    Zero fact checks, quasi truth, and basically a “white people are bad” propaganda. No wonder every reputable historian and fact checker disavows this fantasy series.

    Very Moving

    I’ve learned so much but am saddened by some of the comments from narrow minded people who aren’t willing to open their minds to another side of history that we have tried to bury.

    Essential Learning for Every American

    Based on indisputable facts and events from our nation’s past and present. Finally, we have an impeccably done presentation of history told from the voices of the people whose families actually have lived these events and policies, and how these ramifications impact families today. So energizing to hear in mainstream from one of the voices who were never at the table in the writing of American history as the majority of our citizens learned it. So well done. This finally humanizes our history. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Misinformation is not news

    Leftist, marxist propaganda is uninteresting. Redefining key words in the dictionary doesn’t prove ideological success. No thank you

    A Hard Truth

    Each episode clearly links the lingering aftermath and hold institutional racism has played in music, economics, farming and health care. It’s insidious. And difficult to separate from what most believe to be “true.” I see why there are those who heartily denounce this work because it rips into the false American notion that African-Americans are largely, if not solely, to blame for the centuries of hardship faced at every turn. I am entirely grateful for this work. It hurt to listen, but I needed to listen. I needed my eyes opened. Hopefully more episodes are in the works.

    Very Informative

    Another great podcast that helps put together the pieces of our real American history. Fascinating and heartbreaking, I’m glad to learn about all of this history of African Americans.

    This is a masterpiece

    Nicole Hannah-Jones, America is greatly indebted to you for creating this long-overdue and comprehensive historical review of our nation’s history. I thought I “knew all about slavery” and like other well-intentioned white people have supported the civil rights movement and BLM. How wrong I was to think I knew my history. I learned an enormous amount from this pod. I sent it to my daughter’s 5th grade class for use in the classroom. Our country has very old and painful wounds in need of repair. How can we begin without all the information? Thank you so much for this wonderful piece of journalism. I also appreciated hearing from Wesley Morris in one of the shows. Best of luck with your endeavors going forward.
