Here is the event info:

From the Emancipation Proclamation to the 13th Amendment
Thursday, January 10, 2013
6pm – 8pm

January 1, 2013 marked the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, issued by President Abraham Lincoln, freeing slaves in the Confederate States. Contrary to popular belief, the Emancipation Proclamation did not free all slaves. It also did not outlaw slavery or make the former slaves citizens. Slavery would not be outlawed in all states until December, 1865 with the passage of the 13th Amendment.

Do you want to learn more about these crucial documents in American History? Join us for an in depth discussion with renowned scholar, author, historian Lerone Bennett, Jr. as he interprets, evaluates, and “breaks down” the political and moral debates concerning the American Civil War (1861–1865), the Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation (1862), the Emancipation Proclamation (1863), the Thirteenth Amendment (1865), and their aftermaths 150+ years later.

Lerone Bennett, Jr. has written several books, including numerous histories of the African-American experience. These include his first work Before the Mayflower: A History of Black America,[masked] and also Forced into Glory: Abraham Lincoln’s White Dream, which questions President Abraham Lincoln’s role as the “Great Emancipator”

    Don't see anyone yet from the group :( I'm standing right by the table where you pay. The auditorium just opened for seating. I will stick around until 5:55, then go inside to find a seat.
