USA – The 1619 Project is emblematic of the scourge of the Left’s fanciful revisionism that posits America as a nation built on slavery and White Supremacy. It is merely a part of the cultural revolution the collectivists behind Black Lives Matter are trying mightily to hoist upon Americans, but it is an important one. It has been accepted as truth (it’s wildly inaccurate), and is now being adopted by school districts around the country.
Current events should at least remind us how consequential such indoctrination is, and the leaders on the Left are counting on it becoming even more potent. So, as a patriot that recognizes the importance of understanding the truth of things, what to do?
Bob Woodson knew what to do. The former civil rights activists, author, and education leader launched 1776 Unites.Notice: The WPP_Query class has been deprecated since 5.0.0.

Woodson founded the Woodson Center in 1981, a organization that “works to identify and bring recognition and funding to strengthen the efforts of indigenous neighborhood leaders and organizations that are effectively addressing critical problems of their communities through innovative initiatives.” It’s mission is to “transform lives, schools, and troubled neighborhoods, from the inside out” by involving community leaders in forming innovative solutions for their own neighborhoods.
When the 1619 Project started gettingg mainstreamed, Woodson stepped up to unite scholars, faith leaders, and patriots that understood the dangers of forsaking the self-evident truths our founders so adamantly declared in 1776. The real truths that undergird the rise of the freest and most prosperous people in world history.
““1776” is an assembly of independent voices who uphold our country’s authentic founding virtues and values and challenge those who assert America is forever defined by its past failures, such as slavery. We seek to offer alternative perspectives that celebrate the progress America has made on delivering its promise of equality and opportunity and highlight the resilience of its people. Our focus is on solving problems.
We do this in the spirit of 1776, the date of America’s true founding.”
The project unites scholars that provide a ton of content that celebrates the truths about our founding principles of the United States of America and offers commentary on the ‘woke’ movements currently dominating the culture narrative.
If sunlight is the best disinfectant, then we should all make sure that the 1776 Unites campaign shines as brightly as possible.
