Champions of Literacy
We can’t think of anyone who has had more of a positive influence on the political, social, and academic conversation in the United States over the past few years than Nikole Hannah-Jones.
Literacy Partners is proud to present our Champion of Literacy Award to Nikole and the New York Times Magazine for their extraordinary work of journalism, The 1619 Project.
Recovering and telling this critical history has created an extended dialogue that is moving our society forward, despite the defenders of white supremacy and their best efforts to discredit the work.
