Publisher's Summary

An indispensable corrective to the falsified version of Black history presented by The 1619 Project, radical activists, and money-hungry “diversity consultants".

In the rush to redefine the place of Black Americans in contemporary society, many radical activists and academics have mounted a campaign to destroy traditional American history and replace it with a politicized version that few would recognize. According to the new radical orthodoxy, the United States was founded as a racist nation - and everything that has happened throughout our history must be viewed through the lens of the systemic oppression of Black people. Rejecting this false narrative, a collection of the most prominent and respected Black scholars and thinkers has come together to correct the record and tell the true story of Black Americans in all its complexity, diversity of experience, and poignancy. Collectively, they paint a vivid picture of Black people living the grand American experience, however bumpy the road may be along the way. But rather than a people apart, Blacks are woven into the united whole that makes this nation unique in history.

1776 United

Red, White, and Black uses 20 essays by Black American leaders to debunk the 1619 Project which was written by journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones in the New York Times Magazine. The magazine devoted an entire addition to the 1619 Project. This book exposes the 1619 project for the misinterpretation that it is. Author Robert L Woodson Sr.founded the oppositional (to the 1619 Project) 1776 United group of Black voices. Calvin Robinson does a great job of narrating. I recommend Red, White, and Black.

Really?

This is basically what would happen if Uncle Ruckus made a book. The points made here are absolutely silly and I get second-hand embarrassment from the rudimentary “counters” to common narratives that lack depth, understanding, and nuance.

“They try to say the police are racist but actually did you know black people commit way more crime?” Lmfaooooo - The person doesn’t bother to address WHY that is, nor do they seem to know or care that this talking point is extremely tired and has been contextualized to demonstrate why that is many times over in this day and age.

If you’re a Candace Owens fan, you’ll love this book. I do not mean that in a nice way. You can have an appreciation for country and an identity rooted in self determination without believing some of the absolute nonsense spewed in this book.

The Best Combination of Black Scholarship

This work by moderate and conservative black leaders in business, policy, and philosophy is the perfect counterbalance to the reductive racialism of as Critical Race Theory activists. As noted in every chapter, the goal is to tell the full story of Black victory over slavery and segregation, rather than crafting a victimhood narrative that excuses internal faults and belittles the value of self discipline.

Right on the money!

I really enjoyed this book! I really liked how balanced they were, I really like how they weren’t so heavy on one or the other side, but really talked about the historicity of America concerning black culture and reality. I’m so thankful to have read this, and to know even slaves ex slaves and those that have worked their way up in our freedom land gave no excuse to any oppression in the past present, and even the future. I highly recommend it!

A counterpoint anthology

Written as response to the NYT 1619 Project, a work inflammatory in its nature, this book presents a series of essays that assert that black empowerment should come from within, and points out historical and contemporary examples of such. While I can appreciate the underlying thesis, I found the several of the contributors’ tone unnecessarily combative and accusatory - perhaps in an effort to motivate their intended audience. I found their dismissal of government efforts in favor of focusing on community-based and faith-based solutions alone an interesting but unbalanced in premise and approach.

As a body of work, the contributors’ scholarship seems narrowly defined, and their editorial ‘voice’ partisan. Dismissing the tone of some of the essays, I think that there is a hopeful and pragmatic response to the history of slavery and racial discrimination that is present in our history. Yet I suspect that a true solution rests somewhere in the middle ground between the points of view presented here and those touched upon by the 1619 project.
