1619 Project: A Flawed Interpretation With a Hidden Agenda (Video)
February 5, 2023
In this episode of Liberty Curious, Kate Wand and AIER Research and Education Director Phillip W. Magness highlight the historical flaws of the 1619 project, and explore why it excludes abolitionists like Frederick Douglass.
Phil describes how the project’s creators use pro-slavery figures to denounce free-market capitalism, and exposes the underlying Marxist ideology that underpins the 1619 Project’s premises. Ironically, as Phil explains, slavery has more in common with Marxism than the 1619 project’s authors care to admit.
