History Happy Hour: Civil War and Civil Rights: African Americans and Civil Rights During the Past 150 Years. On January 1, 1863, President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, which declared that all slaves held in Confederate states shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free.

Join us for an engaging discussion around these themes led by Brent Newton, JD. Beer, Wine and appetizers.
