The Endless Civil War Part II: Historical Memories: When Will the War End for African-Americans?, 1945-2020

The Endless Civil War, Part II

The struggle for dignity and full citizenship for African-Americans didn’t end at Appomattox or even with the passage of the landmark Civil Rights legislation of the 1960s. In the wake of the tragic death of George Floyd last month, many would contend that, in some form, the Civil War continues to the present day. Join renowned scholar of the Abolitionist Movement, Professor Emeritus Jim Stewart of Macalester, for a discussion of the ongoing legacy of our nation’s most divisive conflict and how it continues to affect all our lives.

This program was sponsored by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute with the financial support of the Friends of the Ramsey County Libraries.
