Event Details

Dr. Bernard Demczuk, assistant vice president for DC relations and local artist Laura Era will discuss the life and contributions of Anna Carroll, a trusted yet forgotten advisor to President Abraham Lincoln.  Laura Era is the artist who restored Anna Carroll into her rightful place in Francis Bicknell Carpenter's painting "First Reading of the Emancipation Proclamation by President Lincoln."  Join us for what promises to be a lively discussion.  Beverages and cookies will be provided. 

If you require an accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact the Office of the Vice Provost for Diversity and Inclusion in advance at 202-994-7434. 




This event is one of several planned as part of the yearlong Pro[Claiming] Freedom series commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation and the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. The series explores the way we talk about, remember and understand significant milestones in this nation’s historical and ongoing effort to realize the ideals of democracy.
