August History Happy Hour - Civil War & Civil Rights: African Americans & Civil Rights

On January 1, 1863, President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, which declared that all slaves held in Confederate states “…shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free.” But how free were the slaves, really?  What challenges and battles still existed for African Americans to overcome?  What barriers and divisions still exist today?

Join us for an engaging discussion around these themes led by Brent Newton, JD. Beer, wine, and appetizers included.
