Lincoln’s Assassination and its Consequences

February 6 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm


Free but please reserve your seat at the link below.

Prominent abolitionist Frederick Douglas gave a series of speeches in Illinois in the aftermath of President Lincoln’s assassination that ask timely questions about the direction the Nation will take into the Reconstruction Period. Many of those questions remain relevant decades later in a compelling presentation and discussion with historical reenactor Bob Davis.

Noted historical reenactor Bob Davis brings to life the words and ideas of prominent abolitionist Frederick Douglas in the aftermath of Lincoln’s assassination as we celebrate Black History Month.
