Black History Month Virtual Event: “Learning to Love Lincoln”

STC Library presents scholar, author, and professor Diana Schaub of Loyola University Maryland, who will be discussing Frederick Douglass’s speech, “Oration in Memory of Lincoln.”

“Having originally been a severe critic of Abraham Lincoln, the radical abolitionist Frederick Douglass grew to appreciate Lincoln’s prudential statesmanship. In his 1876 “Oration in Memory of Lincoln” he recapitulated that intellectual and emotional journey for the benefit of all Americans.”

This event is free and open to the public, and will be conducted through Zoom.
