On Tuesday, February 16 Feb at 1 p.m., Prof. Maria Helena Lima (English & Black Studies) will share her experience creating the course HUMN 222: Black Humanities. HUMN 222  explores The New York Times “The 1619 Project” and takes on The Times challenge to reframe American history, to consider the possibility that the origin of this country can be traced to 1619, the year that marks the arrival of the first Africans (from the land that would become Angola) to the land that would become America in all its defining contradictions.
