Watson Senior Fellow ZZ Packer hosts a panel featuring Nicole Terez Dutton, writer and editor of Kenyon Review, Tiya Miles, Professor of History and Radcliffe Alumnae Professor at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University, and author and National Book Award winner Jacqueline Woodson.

This public panel is the culmination of the Watson Institute student study group hosted by ZZ Packer, The 1619 Project: Governing Narratives. With the essays and methodology of the New York Times1619 Project as a starting point, the group has been exploring how certain political, historical and sociological narratives inform an American ethos and construct an American identity—sometimes at the expense of competing narratives.
