Their real reasons for opposing the 1619 Project are, well, quite black and
white. If the Project seeks to correct the established narrative of
American history, which has for so long sidelined slavery, racism, Jim
Crow, the Civil Rights movement, mass incarceration, and a host of other
things in the prefix of *African *American History, these scholars seek to
maintain the status quo. For these scholars, the 1619 Project gets the
“facts” wrong, and instead interprets history in a way which, in their
words, foregrounds “identity politics.”
