21 Scholars Demand ‘1619 Project’ Writer Lose Pulitzer For Fabricating History

A group of 21 scholars have published a letter on the website of the National Association of Scholars, calling for the Pulitzer Prize Board to strip the New York Times‘ Nikole Hannah-Jones of her 2020 prize for her article series, the “1619 project.”

The series contains writings by journalists and op-ed contributors who retell American history through the lens of slavery.

In particular, it attempts to cast the Atlantic slave trade as the primary factor in the founding of America, which critics have slammed as an attempt to rewrite US history through an inaccurate, left-wing lens which suggests that the American revolution was fought to preserve slavery, rather than seeking to separate from Britain.
