Head up to MLK Library's Washingtoniana Division Tuesday 9/22 at 6:30pm for "From Slavery to Emancipation: Abraham Lincoln in African Memory" presented by Dr. James Horton. Horton is the Benjamin Banneker Professor Emeritus of American Studies and History, George Washington University.

Many Scholars believe that as a defender of national unity, leader in war, and freer of slaves, Abraham Lincoln can be considered one of America's greatest presidents. In commemoration of Lincoln's birth, Dr. Horton will shed light on slavery and emancipation.
