Active Minds Lecture: The Emancipation Proclamation
Active Minds Lecture Colfax
| Colfax Avenue: The Emancipation Proclamation, which took effect 150 years ago, changed the course of the United States while it was embroiled in the Civil War. In it, President Abraham Lincoln exercised his constitutional authority as commander in chief of the armed forces, to proclaim all slaves in Confederate territory to be forever free. Join Active Minds as we explore what this historic proclamation did and did not do. We will examine its impact, both immediate and longer term, from the perspective of slaves, slave owners, Northerners, Southerners, and the country as a whole. |
