African Americans & Lincoln

Friday, December 26, 2008African Americans and Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln is heralded by history as The Great Emancipator. But his record on racial issues, and his image among African Americans, is a little more complicated. Some scholars believe Lincoln is undeserving of his canonization as a champion of equal rights, saying his first priority was to preserve the union – whether or not slavery was abolished in the process. Join us Friday on State of Affairs as we take a look at Abraham Lincoln from an African American perspective. This is an archive edition of the show, so we aren't able to take calls this hour.
