DuSable to discuss Blacks in Civil War

The DuSable Museum, 740 E. 56th Place, will host Professor Harold Jones, the assistant director of the African American Civil War Museum in Washington, D.C., to present a talk on the impact of Black soldiers on the Civil War.

African American participation was made possible by President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation which, although it did not offer freedom to people who were enslaved in the North, did allow them to fight.

The event is free to the public, and will take place Tuesday, July 2, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
