In conjunction with the Remembrance Project

Save The Date!
Join the Pulitzer Center education team February 19-20, 2022 as we celebrate the inaugural cohort of The 1619 Project Education Network by hosting our first 1619 Education Conference.
This conference will offer the opportunity to learn from Education Network members, meet contributors to The 1619 Project, and connect with journalists covering reporting related to The 1619 Project. Our Network members represent a variety of school contexts and have valuable insight on effectively implementing 1619 into the classroom.
The 1619 Education Conference is a free and open event, but we especially encourage educators interested in applying to the next 1619 Education Network cohort to attend. REGISTER HERE
History of the Remembrance Project
September 18, 2019, Interfaith Service is the official kickoff to our Journey of Remembrance and Reconciliation. The project is gaining momentum for its third phase, which includes approval by the Board of Commissioners of DeKalb County to erect a marker in Decatur Square; placement of a second marker in Lithonia; and collaboration with EJI to move the marker from Montgomery to Decatur, along with an iron or steel module bearing the names of DeKalb’s lynching victims. These and other related activities will be celebrated during a series of events culminating in an unveiling ceremony and reception. Details of the events will follow.
