Nikole Hannah-Jones is an award-winning investigative reporter
covering racial injustice for The New York Times Magazine. A 2016 Peabody Award winner for her series on school segregation for “This American Life” and 2017 MacArthur Fellow, Hannah-Jones was most recently the lead journalist for The 1619 Project.


Join us–Civic Saturday style–as we use history, poetry, and music to anchor a conversation about why it is time to revolutionize the way we talk about our past. About how it is a moral imperative we re-frame conversations on history, society, and race in order to address systemic injustices. America’s traditional origin stories don’t work for everyone and now is the time to wrestle with the meaning of who we are and who we want to be in order to bring America closer to its promises.

Presented by Spirit & Place, Butler Arts Center, IUPUI Africana Studies Program, Central Indiana Community Foundation and Indiana University Bloomington Department of African American and African Diaspora Studies.
