'Forever Free?': Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation and the Real Meaning Of Freedom
Tue. 1 October 2013 | 6 - 7:30 PM
Dr. Becky Fraser will be presenting a talk entitled Forever Free: Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation and the Real Meaning of Freedom.
In the 150 th year anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, freeing all enslaved peoples in the Confederate States of America, this lecture will consider the very complex and complicated dimensions of freedom for the nearly four million enslaved peoples the Proclamation applied to. In addition it will question whether Lincoln can be, and indeed should be, hailed as the Great Emancipator, given the limits of the actual declaration and its historical legacies.
