Between the Lines: Deborah Willis and Barbara Krauthamer
Presented in partnership with The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture
Monday, February 4, 2013
The Schomburg Center commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation through conversation with Deborah Willis and Barbara Krauthamer, authors of Envisioning Emancipation: Black Americans and the End of Slavery.
The book is a powerful photographic survey of what freedom looked like for black Americans in the Civil War Era. Sam Pollard, director of the documentary, Slavery By Another Name, will moderate. A book signing will follow the program.
TD Bank is the lead sponsor of Black History Month at the Schomburg Center.
