GZERO WORLD with Ian Bremmer | Episode | Life, Liberty, and the Legacy of Slavery
According to the 1619 Project’s Nikole Hannah-Jones, the US was founded on life, liberty, and…slavery. America didn’t need slavery to succeed, Hannah-Jones argues, but it chose slavery, and succeeded because of it. When she published the 1619 Project in the New York Times in 2019, it went off like a cultural atom bomb. Now she's back in the spotlight with a new book that expands on the project.
