Envisioning Emancipation: Black Americans and the End of SlaveryBack to Calendar
Presented by author Barbara Krauthamer, the Berkshire Museum presents this lecture in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation. Based on her newly released book of the same name, Krauthamer explores the question “what did freedom look like” in this two-part series using a visual narrative of more than 150 historical photographs including the Massachusetts 54th Regiment, abolitionist conventions in upstate N.Y., and Sojourner Truth.
Books will be available for purchase. Seating is limited, so reservations are requested: call 413.443.7171, ext. 10. Unclaimed reservations will be released five minutes before the start of the lecture, then available on a first-come, first-served basis. Seats may be reserved for one or all Krauthamer lectures. Light refreshments served. Free with Museum admission.
