This is a well-written and thought-provoking analysis of The 1619 Project, which highlights the mistreatment of black women during slavery and the institutionalized racism that persists in American society. The author stresses the importance of listening to the voices of black women and emotional storytelling to inspire change.

Your art work was extremely eye-catching and definitely brought me to read. The specifics on how black women were treated was an important insight to bring attention to. Along with the other artwork you included the MLK speech at the end was a very inventive way of wrapping up your post. Great job!

The addition of MLk’s speech was amazing

I really enjoyed the various images, as well as the attached video clip of MLK. When reading I was drawn to your mention of how black women were groomed and treated during slavery. This was also a topic I reflected on and touched on, so I 100% agreed.

Nick, the first thing I was drawn to was your featured image, it connects perfectly with your title and I think it is very creative the way you used ai. Your mentioning that white Americans believe they need to “police black lives” to contribute to their community is so true! How do you think Dr. King’s speech can be applied to the next generation?

The addition of MLK’s speech really tied your whole post together

Not only did I enjoy your post, but your images really enhanced your thoughts here. I really like your featured image and its relation to the text and the title.

The use of MLK really helped me get a better understanding of where you were coming from and how you perceived the viewing.

I like the image you used to represent your title, it’s really fitting and shows how deep the racial prejudice in America truly is.

I totally agree with you Nicholas. However do you think the whole thing was just about race alone and not gender? If so whats your feelings towards gender?
