Abraham Lincoln is often called The Great Emancipator; however, enslaved people were responsible for seizing their own freedom. During this program, students will explore primary sources related to self-emancipation at Fort Monroe and the resulting Confiscation Acts. Students will also analyze the Emancipation Proclamation and explore the impact it had on both enslaved and free African Americans. This is a virtual webinar.
