Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell has sent a letter to the Department of Education, objecting to the implementation of the 1619 Project in American schools.

She and the New York Times have also already scrubbed central aspects of the project, angering progressives. Now, a group of scholars is calling on the Pulitzer board to revoke a prize awarded to Jones last spring.
