Publisher's Summary

It’s the New “Big Lie”.

According the New York Times’ “1619 Project”, America was not founded in 1776, with a declaration of freedom and independence, but in 1619 with the introduction of African slavery into the New World. Ever since then, the “1619 Project” argues, American history has been one long sordid tale of systemic racism.

Celebrated historians have debunked this, more than 200 years of American literature disproves it, parents know it to be false, and yet it is being promoted across America as an integral part of grade school curricula and unquestionable orthodoxy on college campuses.

The “1619 Project” is not just bad history, it is a danger to our national life, replacing the idea, goal, and reality of American unity with race-based obsessions that we have seen play out in violence, riots, and the destruction of American monuments - not to mention the wholesale rewriting of America’s historical and cultural past.

In her new book, Debunking the 1619 Project, scholar Mary Grabar, shows, in dramatic fashion, just how full of flat-out lies, distortions, and noxious propaganda the “1619 Project” really is. It is essential listening for every concerned parent, citizen, school board member, and policymaker.

impressive scholarship

Unlike the dishonest and tendentious 1619 Project, this book is impressive in the depth and breadth of its scholarship. More than a simple debunking of the 1619 Project, it provides a fascinating picture of the history of slavery and freedom in the United States. Perhaps the most surprising thing I learned was that a significant number of free blacks in the American South were themselves slave owners. Highly recommended.

A Must Read!

Mary Grabar goes way beyond just Debunking the 1619 Project. She finishes the book by demolishing the tenets of the 1619 Project using names, dates and reviews of actual real historians.

It's Grabar's volume of information coming down like a sledgehammer on The 1619 Project's baseless accusations that sets it apart from other books.

Grabar leaves Hannah-Jones no quarter, leaving the polemicist up to her chin in debunked lies and racist rhetoric.

An easy argument crippled by sensationalism

1619, and all it’s peripheral nonsense, takes only the slightest bit of remedial education to put back in its place, the trash bin.

However, this book is a slog of sensationalized “she did what!?”. The reading sounds more like a gossip column than an actual argument against 1619.

Brilliant and balanced

The author pointed out assertions of the 1619 Project and puts them in their proper perspective. in fact, at times it seems like Grabar is pushing those assertions only to next show their exaggerations and misinterpretations. The 1619 Project is debunked and shown to be what it really is, propaganda.

White Supremacy at best.

The author is clearly confused and offers absolutely nothing… written by a white supremacist for other white supremacists.
