And why this means we don't do the most good possible with every dollar we donate.To donate to some of the most effective charities around (and to the causes close to your heart) go to: https://givingmultiplier.org/HAPPINESSLAB Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

A New Origin Story with Nikole Hannah-Jones
The New York Times Magazine's 1619 Project shattered common narratives about the founding of the United States and the profound history, impact and influence of slavery and race in America.

Now, more than a decade later, strangers decide their opinion of her as soon as they hear her name.
