The 1619 Network is an innovative national multidisciplinary community of practice consisting of more than 400 educators in 30 states who have worked to engage over 10,500 students from Pre-K to college and graduate levels with The 1619 Project. Below is an index of the 38 teams that compose the 2021 cohort of The 1619 Project Education Network.
The 2021 cohort was our inaugural Network cohort. The cohort included 159 teachers working in 23 different states. Educators in this cohort worked with learners in K12 schools as well as incarcerated youth and adults. Many of these early implementors of The 1619 Project in classrooms are still working to improve and amplify their work as shown in the Cohort Corner section below.
