Standing on a beach off the coast of Point Comfort, Virginia, actor and artist Janelle Monáe recounts how in August 1619, a ship appeared on that very horizon, carrying more than 20 enslaved Africans who were sold to the colonists. She continues by saying that no aspect of the country we know today has been untouched by the slavery that followed -- that then, America was not yet America, but this was the moment it began. These are words form "The 1619 Project," by The New York Times, which states that the truth can change how we see the world and urges viewers to understand that "the truth is worth it."""
