A Nation Divided: Pro-Slavery and Anti-Slavery in Antebellum America at Central

Saturday, June 24, 2017 - 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Categories: Educational Interest

Before the Northern and Southern states took up arms against each other, abolitionists and proslavery factions waged battle through the printed word. Join Reggie Jackson from America's Black Holocaust Museum as he explains the development and tactics used by pro- and anti-slavery advocates during the most turbulent time in American history.  A selection of original documents, treatises, and newspapers from both sides of the debate will be on display including issues from William Lloyd Garrison's The Liberator. Reggie Jackson is the Head Griot and Historian for the America's Black Holocaust Museum.

Location: Richard E. and Lucile Krug Rare Books Room
