Nikole Hannah-Jones: 1619

Pulitzer Prize winning investigative journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones has devoted her career to exposing systemic and institutional racism in the United States. Chief among her work is the seminal 1619 Project published in the New York Times Magazine—and now a successful podcast and television series— which holds the year 1619 as an essential touchstone for understanding and interpreting America both historically and in the present.

This event is the launch of a new, multiyear project: Charting History, a collaboration between the John Adams Institute, Are We Europe, Lilith  Agency and other partners that re-examines our shared history and heritage.

PLEASE NOTE: There is no reserved seating available for this event. Doors open at 7pm. The event will take place on 28 June (8-10 pm) at Rode Hoed, Keizergracht 102, Amsterdam. More info and tickets here.
