So many historians have spoken up about errors in the New York Times’ Pulitzer prize-winning 1619 Project that Sen. Tom Cotton floated the idea of pulling funds from schools that have integrated (or simply replaced) their history curriculum with the 1619 Project magazine. Even its award-winning architect, Nikole Hannah-Jones, has said that it’s “not a history” but rather a “challenge to the national narrative.”
It’s not going away anytime soon — President Trump’s alternative 1776 Project is dead — and now the Pulitzer Center is looking for someone to manage its brand new 1619 Project Educational Network.
JOB OPENING: This leadership role would manage a number of Pulitzer Center education programs, including the brand new 1619 Project Education Network.
