Lincoln and Anti-Racism

The University of Illinois Springfield Center for Lincoln Studies invites the public to attend the 2021 Mary and James Beaumont Endowed Lincoln Legacy Lecture Series discussion on “Lincoln and Anti-Racism” with professors David Reynolds and James Oakes.

Reynolds and Oakes will discuss the long and turning path to the abolition of American slavery that has often been attributed to the equivocations and inconsistencies of antislavery leaders, including Lincoln himself. Michael Burlingame, holder of the Chancellor Naomi B. Lynn Distinguished Chair in Lincoln Studies at UIS, will moderate and provide an overview.
