Bob Woodson: Slavery Was America’s “Birth Defect,” But It Doesn’t Define America
AMERICAN THOUGHT LEADERS
“The 1619 Project” published by New York Times Magazine has been described by several Civil War scholars as historically inaccurate.But In the eyes of Bob Woodson, who has devoted the past several decades to helping people in troubled, low-income communities, its biggest problem is that it defines America as being incurably racist.Just how does Woodson’s brainchild, 1776, seek to counter this narrative?And, How did the war on poverty radically transform black communities in America? This is American Thought Leaders 🇺🇸, and I’m Jan Jekielek.In this episode, we’ll sit down with Bob Woodson, the founder and president of the Woodson Center. A former civil rights advocate, he is the recipient of the Bradley Prize and the Presidential Citizens Award. ===Don’t forget to LIKE and SUBSCRIBE: https://ept.ms/AmericanThoughtLeadersTry a newspaper that doesn't spin the facts:https://ept.ms/2WrUQlDWant to listen to our interviews?
