Emancipation and the Work of Freedom
In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, the 2013 MTW conference will explore the ways in which Emancipation immediately impacted enslaved African Americans and, crucially, how the enslaved worked to free themselves. The daylong conference features award-winning historians James Oakes, Thavolia Gymph, Steven Hahn, and Tera Hunter. Following the conference, a reception will be held at the Newark Museum.
