The 1851 Project

The Northwestern Undergraduate Research Journal is now accepting submissions for the 1851 project, a national repository amplifying Black voices and narratives of their experiences with systemic racism in the Northwestern community. This project is an ongoing engagement with Yale’s and our country’s racist histories. We draw inspiration from Nikole Hannah-Jones and her colleagues’ examination of slavery’s legacies in the New York Times’ seminal 1619 Project. We seek to create a similar program at the NURJ, giving a space to repressed histories at Northwestern and in the U.S. As a journal of scholarship, we will assume our duty to share these stories with our readers. We are accepting a variety of material––articles, theses, art, podcasts, research talks, etc.
