Join the State Archivist for the District of Columbia for a lecture in United States history.
Juneteenth marked the end of the institution of slavery in America. The end of this institution that fundamentally shaped every aspect of American society opened the door for real societal change. This presentation will discuss how those marginalized in American society during and after slavery have fought to be seen as truly American, the opposition they faced and its lasting legacy.
Emboldened by the long awaited success of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s, the 1970s saw marginalized groups in America begin fighting for recognition and their place in American society. This presentation will discuss those efforts, the opposition they faced and its lasting legacy.
