READ: The 1619 Project.
Genesis 15:13 Then the LORD told Abram, “You can be certain about this: Your descendants will be foreigners in a land that isn’t theirs. They will be slaves there and will be oppressed for 400 years.
Genisis 15:14 “But I will execute judgment on the nation that they will serve. Afterward they will come out with many possessions.”
The scholarship in this New York Times project is devastatingly impactful! Everyone should take the time to absorb what’s presented here. I know many people havent explored this important project in its entirety, but they really should! You really can’t know America without delving into this pivotal historical period. Malcolm X once said, “History is a people’s memory, and without a memory, man is demoted to the lower animals“.
It’s way past the hour for America to look at itself in the mirror, truthfully.
