This program will examine Lincoln’s statesmanship in the context of longstanding and widespread racial bigotry against black Americans. 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.
