Support African American History Through The 1619 Project

June 4, 2020

The 1619 Project is an ongoing project developed by The New York Times Magazine with the goal of re-examining the legacy of slavery in America. Now you can support this groundbreaking, Pulitzer Prize-winning initiative—and the African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund—when you purchase shirts and totes inspired by the project.

Thanks to the generosity of The New York Times Magazine, 50 percent of the sale price of each shirt and tote will be donated to the Action Fund, a National Trust program that examines and eliminates inequities through new forms of partnership, interpretation, and funding. By drawing attention to the remarkable stories that evoke centuries of African American activism and achievement, the Action Fund seeks to tell our nation’s full history and promote preservation as economic and social justice.

Printed by a social-justice heritage brand, the products are available for purchase as part of The 1619 Project Collection on The New York Times Store. (You can also check out the store on Instagram and Facebook.) Thank you for supporting this important work.

Note: For tax purposes, The New York Times’s 50 percent donation will not be viewed as a tax-deductible contribution by the merchandise purchaser.
