The African American Historical Society of Rockland County will host a screening and discussion of The Abolitionists as part of its Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle public programming series. Excerpts from the film will be followed by remarks by Dr. David Lucander on John Brown and remarks by Dr. A. J. Williams-Myers on Lincoln and his role in ending slavery, and then the audience will be invited to share their views about the film, the remarks, the history, and how all that relates to the present.

This event is free and open to the public. Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle is made possible through a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, as part of its Bridging Cultures initiative, in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.
