“The 1619 Project was a great awakening and a true history that you probably never learned in school,” Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer falsely claimed, announcing the partnership between the Canadian movie studio, Oprah Winfrey, and the New York Times. The press release promised that the partnership with the sleazy Canadian studio responsible for Saw, the Hunger Games, and Twilight, will usher in “an expansive portfolio of feature films” and “television series” based on the racist revisionist history promulgated by the New York Times. There is a reason that the 1619 Project isn’t taught in schools. It isn’t true and actual historians have taken apart its false claims that America was built on slavery. Lionsgate though is another story.
