It will explore how Lincoln attempted to inform public opinion regarding the natural rights of black Americans by reclaiming the central idea of the American regime – namely human equality. Presented by Dr. Lucas Morel, Jr. Professor of Politics and Head of the Politics Department at Washington and Lee University.
