In recognition of the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, Brandeis University’s African and African-American Studies (AAAS) along with the History Department have invited Ta-Nehisi Coates of The Atlantic magazine to Brandeis for a public lecture. Coates is arguably one the most dynamic writers on issues of race in the journalism profession today, and is an avid historian of the Civil War.
Coates will speak on “The Civil War and Emancipation in the Age of Obama.” The talk will take place on Lincoln’s birthday, in Rapaporte Treasure Hall at 5pm.
