The 1619 Project Education Conference (2024)

Event Date:

February 17 - 18, 2024

Since 2019, the Pulitzer Center's 1619 education programs and initiatives have supported educators and students across the country in advancing transformative conversations about the legacy of slavery in the United States and the contributions of Black Americans in moving the country towards its stated ideals.

Taking place on February 17 and 18, 2024, the third 1619 Project Education Conference will continue this work by sharing lessons learned and models created by educators in The 1619 Project Education Network, and illuminating the project themes and underlying scholarship through learning workshops and contributor keynotes.

There are educators #Teaching1619 in all education contexts. Our education network includes K-12 classroom teachers; school and public librarians; professors in schools of education and other college/university settings; school and district administrators; program facilitators in jails, prisons, and juvenile detention centers; and out-of-school time educators working in nonprofits, community centers, and more. They support students in states across the country and at every grade level.

The 1619 Project Education Conference is open to all. We welcome you to join us in order to dig deeper into The 1619 Project themes and resources, their potential to empower learners, and methods for sharing them in accessible and engaging ways.

The Pulitzer Center team will release more details on the schedule and speakers as we get closer to the event. Register today to receive conference updates as they are announced.
