A Conversation with NIKOLE HANNAH-JONES is the culminating event in the History Of Redlining In East Greensboro: Conversations About Our City’s Past And Present series. This keynote event for the F.D. Bluford Library series will take place as part of the 2022 Greensboro Bound Literary Festival. Nikole Hannah-Jones, The New York Times Magazine and creator of The 1619 Project will be in conversation with DR. JELANI FAVORS. Hannah-Jones is the Pulitzer Prize-winning creator of The 1619 Project, Knight Chair in Race and Journalism at Howard University, and MacArthur Genius Award Winner.
Dr. Jelani M. Favors is the Henry E. Frye Distinguished Professor at N.C. A&T and the award-winning author of Shelter in a Time of Storm. Their conversation will be a wide-ranging discussion about Professor Hannah-Jones’ work to chronicle “the decades-long failure of the federal government to enforce the landmark 1968 Fair Housing Act” and her latest book, The 1619 Project.
Thanks for the support yall. I hope that some of you were able to make it out to last night's program. Unfortunately I was not in the number. Covid finally found its way into my home and infected my entire family. Although we have all fully recovered (shout out to the vaccines and boosters) I was unable to produce a negative Covid result in time to be on stage with NHJ. Feeling 100% better now and looking forward to participating in future public forums at A&T.
