Nikole Hannah-Jones is having her moment. It’s really been leading up to this for a while. The creator of The New York Times’ “1619 Project,” which argues the real year of America’s founding should be the year slaves were first brought to America, Hannah-Jones won a Pulitzer for the essay that kicked the whole project off. When the New York Post ran an opinion piece about the violence, statue-toppling and property destruction associated with the recent protests titled “Call them the 1619 Riots,” Hannah-Jones retweeted it along with the quote, “It would be an honor. Thank you.” (She would later tell The Post Millennial this was a “tongue-in-cheek Twitter response.”)
