I wanted to share this video about the Emancipation Proclamation from the National Archives.
For more info on emancipation, here are books from out collection:
- Abraham Lincoln and the road to emancipation, 1861-1865 by William K. Klingaman
- We ain’t what we ought to be : the Black freedom struggle, from emancipation to Obama by Stephen Tuck
- Coming for to carry me home : race in America from abolitionism to Jim Crow by J. Michael Martinez
