Course Description:

Dr. Richard Bell examines the historical record to shed an informed light on two controversial movements: the 1619 Project and Critical Race Theory. In our first session, Dr. Bell tests three of the 1619 Project's central claims against the evidence of history, including whether or not the preservation of slavery was a central motivation of the American Revolution. In our second meeting, he locates the origins of Central Race Theory, establishes its core premises and then shows us CRT in action, narrating the histories of voting rights and crime and punishment through its lens.
