There’s still time to get your tickets for the May 2nd event in Norwalk.


You’ve probably heard about Nikole Hannah-Jones’ and her landmark project The 1619 Project for The New York Times Magazine.

But if you haven’t had a chance to read it (or watch the Hulu docuseries) or aren’t familiar with her impressive, award-winning career, we offer this collection of links below for those who want to explore before our community conversation.

It’s by no means exhaustive, but hope it serves as a jumping-off point.
