    Join a bi-weekly virtual discussion group to explore “The 1619 Project,” a publication of the New York Times Magazine, which marks the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans to Jamestown, Virginia. The series highlights the contributions of Black Americans and the many ways the legacy of slavery continues to shape society in the United States. The project includes essays, photos, stories, music and poems that challenge readers to examine their knowledge of U.S. history and provides a lens to understand the moment of racial reckoning we are in today.

    Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Isabelle Wilkerson writes about the United States as an old house in her new book, Caste:
    Not one of us was here when this house was built. . . .We are the heirs to whatever is right or wrong with it.  We did not erect the uneven pillars or joists, but they are ours to deal with now.  And any further deterioration is, in fact, on our hands.  We must see past the plaster, beyond what had been wallpapered or painted over, as we now are called upon to do in the house we all live in, to examine a structure built long ago.”

    NASA once approached a well-known musicologist and scientist and said, "We're sending a rocket into deep space and want to include a representation of the music of the human race. What do you recommend we send?"  He responded, "Well, I'd suggest the complete works of J. S. Bach - but that would be bragging."
    And how right he was.  Johann Sebastian Bach literally and figuratively wrote the book on how music works.  The forms, harmonies, progressions we use today were outlined by him more than 300 years ago.  His influence is everywhere.  In this class we'll listen to some of the remarkable works he left us, and learn why they are so remarkable.
