El Proyecto 1619: Nacieron sobre el agua

A Spanish-language edition of the New York Times bestselling picture book in verse The 1619 Project: Born on the Water, which chronicles the consequences of slavery and the history of Black resistance in the United States, thoughtfully rendered by Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones and Newbery honor–winning author Renée Watson.

A young student receives a family tree assignment in school, but she can only trace back three generations. Grandma gathers the whole family, and the student learns that 400 years ago, in 1619, their ancestors were stolen and brought to America by white slave traders. But before that, they had a home, a land, a language. She learns how the people said to be born on the water survived.

Born on the Water, with this edition translated by Jasminne Mendez, provides a pathway for readers of all ages to reflect on the origins of American identity.
