EMANCIPATION 150: A Timeline
Wednesday, January 02, 2013
Since its launch in April 2009, The Greene Space has presented events and conversations that highlight the cultural richness of New York City, and the world. With EMANCIPATION 150, we take a look at one of the most important documents in American history, examine its legacy and reflect on the state of emancipation for African Americans today.
We begin to tell that story with this timeline of milestones in the African American experience - from major historical moments to the diversity of voices and ideas that have emerged over the last 150 years. Scroll through the timeline below to watch a fascinating discussion with the family and friends of Malcom X, and see stirring performances by the Morehouse College Glee Club and Esperanza Spalding, and more. Join the conversation here in the comments below, and tell us what moments and voices you'd add to this timeline.
