Emancipation Nation Panel Discussion

Emancipation Nation panel discussion

NEH sponsored a panel discussion by five prominent Civil War scholars of pre-Emancipation life and the events that led to the issuance of the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation. The discussion was live-streamed on September 17 from the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, thanks to the generosity of the History Channel. The panel, moderated by University of Richmond President Edward L. Ayers, featured historians Eric Foner of Columbia University, Thavolia Glymph of Duke University, Gary Gallagher of the University of Virginia, and Christy Coleman from the American Civil War Center in Richmond, Virginia. Watch video of the discussion:
