Historical Forum Discussion (4/27/2012): Slavery or Freedom Forever?

Join the Russell Forum for a community forum on the historical crisis of American slavery, on Friday, April 27th from 3:30-5:00PM. With the help of trained neutral moderators, participants will weigh several approaches faced by Americans in 1854 for contending with slavery and its future in the United States and look closely at the values underlying these historical approaches. The group will also consider if and how these same underlying values inform American attitudes and approaches to tough public issues today. All are welcome to this free event!
