The New York Times "1619 Project" and the 400th anniversary of African captives being brought to Virginia in 1619 have re-ignited a public debate on "Revisionist History" and where our American story begins. Columbus? Jamestown? Massachusetts Bay? The Revolution? These analyses often fall short of understanding the full breadth, complexity and vastness of early America, and the interconnectedness of the American story with the global dynamics of the period. On the 400th anniversary of 1619, three historians debate where and who should be part of America's founding story, as well as the myths and realities surrounding America's creation.
