Audio Series Reexamining the Legacy of Slavery in the United States

The 1619 podcast, part of the 1619 Project from The New York Times, begins with the sound of surf and seagulls along the coast of Point Comfort in Hampton, Virginia, where, 400 years ago, in a ship called White Lion, enslaved African people arrived for the first time in what became the United States. Through powerful writing and archival audio, the podcast illuminates the history and legacy of how the United States was built simultaneously on the language of freedom and the economics of slavery. The series includes an introduction to “1619” along with five episodes entitled “The Fight for a True Democracy,” “The Economy That Slavery Built,” “The Birth of American Music,” “How the Bad Blood Started,” and “The Land of Our Fathers.” The episodes may be accessed by subscribing to Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or Stitcher, or by using the Podbean player and free app for iOS and Android devices, with in-app purchases.
