Event description
Diana Schaub, “Booker T. Washington and the Lessons of Lincoln”

About this Event

Believing that civic friendship was a necessary foundation for constitutional liberty, Booker T. Washington worked diligently and deftly to reshape the American character in a way that would foster racial reconciliation. The lecture will examine how Washington employed the nation's memory of Abraham Lincoln to further his own redemptive moral vision and subtle statesmanship.
