Named one of the Best Books of the Year by The Washington Post, this new book explores the legacy of slavery in the United States through poetry and prose that illustrate key moments of oppression, struggles, and resistance. The essays show how 1619 continues to affect us today, from politics, music to diet, traffic, and even our democracy itself.

“In The 1619 Project, Hannah-Jones introduces a new origin story and reveals long-hidden truths about America’s founding and its construction, and how the legacy of slavery continues to shape contemporary American society.”

The Book Guide® Editor

A ship carrying enslaved Africans arrived in the British colony in Virginia in late August 1619. Their arrival led to a barbaric and unprecedented system of slavery that lasted for the next 250 years in America. This is sometimes referred to as the country’ s original sin, but it’s more than that: It’s the source of so much still defining the US.

There is no question that Elon Musk is a special individual, someone with BIG dreams and the drive, talent, and money to make them happen.

In Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future biographer Ashlee Vance gives us a picture of both the dreams and the man, peering back to where Musk began, describing his journey from then to now, looking at how he is impacting the world today, and gazing ahead to where he wants to go.

Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud is written by a BuzzFeed writer who also published another work of nonfiction about the scandals of Golden Age Hollywood. TOO FAT also focuses on Hollywood, but Hollywood in the present day: in particular, it is a rather scathing and critical look at how various women are treated by the media when they choose to openly defy various gender roles, and what that means for us, as a society.
