Kevin Wood, speaker

Come along with Lincoln enthusiast Kevin Wood as he transports us to the era of Lincoln's presidency with the presentations Abraham Lincoln: A New Birth of Freedom and Lincoln on Slavery, Emancipation and Equality. As one of the most admired and respected historical figures in our nation, President Abraham Lincoln is brought to life by Wood, who bears a striking resemblance to the president.

Mr. Lincoln explores how his views on slavery, emancipation and equality changed over time and how they affected the white-black relations in his era. He summarizes the history of slavery in North America and the political debates and compromises over it. He shares his personal and political opinions and actions on these issues, such as the Emancipation Proclamation, the enlistment of black soldiers, the rejection of colonization and the support of black voting rights.

While Freedom Confirmed events are complimentary, preregistration is required.
