In the News: "Exhibit Celebrates Key Stage in Emancipation Struggle"

Kevin Brown's article, "Exhibit celebrates key stage in emancipation struggle," is in this week's issue of the University Record. Co-curators Martha S. Jones and Clayton Lewis developed this exhibit, which commemorates the 150th anniversary of Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation. Newspapers, broadsides, photographs, and letters document the effects of the proclamation and its impact on visual culture. This exhibit is a collaboration between the Law School's Program in Race, Law & History, the William L. Clements Library, and the U-M Library. It is on display in the Hatcher Library's Room 100 Gallery and Audubon Room until February 18, 2013.
