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.
