All Case Western Reserve University community members are invited to attend the lecture “Until Justice Be Done: America’s First Civil Rights Movement, from the Revolution to Reconstruction” featuring Kate Masur, author and professor of history at Northwestern University.
This lecture, drawn from Masur’s new book, will discuss the broad-based northern movement for racial equality before the Civil War and how it shaped national politics and, ultimately, the Constitution. She will devote special attention to developments in Ohio, where the movement was particularly successful.
The lecture will take place Thursday, Sept. 9, at 4:30 p.m. in Clark Hall, Room 206. The event is sponsored by the Department of History, Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities, Department of Political Science, Department of Sociology, and the Western Reserve Historical Society. Masks are required for attendees.
