Huffington Post Live: Simplifying Emancipation

Hey All –

Racialicious is still on break, but I was on Huffington Post Live with Janell Ross (HuffPost Black Voices and Latino Voices Senior Reporter), Professor Jelani Cobb (Director of the Institute of African American Studies at the University of Connecticut) and William Ferris (Professor of History and Folklore at University of North Carolina).

We discussed Ross’s article “America’s Understanding of Emancipation Proclamation On Its 150th Anniversary Too Simple For Country’s Own Good.” Our friend Ahmed Shihab-Eldin moderated the discussion.
