  • Indiana taxpayers shelled out more than $100,000 to 1619 Project author Nikole Hannah-Jones for just over 24 hours of work, according to a contract obtained by The Daily Wire under public records laws.
  • The deal between the Trustees of Indiana University and Hannah-Jones’ speakers bureau said the university would pay $101,700 for a “2022 Themester Lecture on Identity and Identification.” The “Themester” reference meant that for an entire semester, Indiana students were told to focus on the “theme” of identity.
