"Reading the Emancipation Proclamation" Charles Henry Granger 1864
This Week on Due Process
150 years ago, he signed the Emancipation Proclamation. Two years later, he would see the Emancipation Proclamation through. But how did Abraham Lincoln really feel about African-Americans and slavery? Was the Lincoln who first ran for President, the same Lincoln who was killed in office? And how did an apparent racist become the Great Emancipator?
On this edition of Due Process, we turn to two nationally-recognized experts for answers: Rutgers Distinguished History Professor Clement Price, Director of the University's Institute on Ethnicity, Culture and the Modern Experience, and Columbia University Historian Eric Foner, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book, "The Fiery Trial, Lincoln and Slavery."
In a wide-ranging conversation with Sandra King and Raymond Brown, Professors Price and Foner explore Lincoln's racism, his pragmatism and his unique ability for growth.
We hope you'll join us on Sunday at 9:30am or 7:00pm, or Tuesday night at 11:30.
