ABRAHAM LINCOLN: THE GREAT EMANCIPATOR

In commemoration of the end of the Civil War, the death of Lincoln, and the Thirteenth Amendment abolishing slavery, the National Abolition Hall of Fame and Museum (NAHOF) has suspended its 2015 induction ceremonies to address the matter of President Lincoln as “The Great Emancipator.” Several programs will provide opportunity for the public to study Lincoln as an abolitionist.

The first public program is Thursday, September 24 at 1 pm and 6 pm when the Cazenovia Public Library generously presents Lincoln,the movie. The film Lincoln was directed and produced by Steve Spielberg.  Tony Kushner based the screenplay on Doris Kearns Goodwin’s award winning book Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln. The historical drama covers the last four months of Lincoln’s life and his efforts to end the war, unite the country, and to pass the resolution to abolish slavery. Daniel Day-Lewis won an academy award for his portrayal of the sixteenth president. Members of the National Abolition Hall of Fame and Museum Cabinet of Freedom will be at both sessions of the movie for questions and discussion. The public is encouraged to participate in the free program.

The Thirteenth Amendment (“Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude,… shall exist with within the United States..”) was proposed by the U.S. Senate on April 8, 1864. The movie Lincolnfeatures the historical drama of securing the votes needed in the House of Representative to pass the resolution. The Thirteenth Amendment was passed by Congress on January 31, 1865 and ratified by the states on December 6, 1865.

The “Lincoln Weekend” will begin at the Catherine Cummings Theatre in Cazenovia at 7 p.m. Friday, October 23 with A Concert for President Lincoln by the Excelsior Cornet Band.  The next day, Saturday October 24 at the Cummings Theatre The Emancipation of Abraham Lincoln: Head, Heart, and the American Memory will be presented by a panel of Lincoln scholars at 2 p.m., and at 7 p.m.Harold Holzer, President of the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Foundation, will present Abraham Lincoln and the Abolition Press.Admission for adults is a Lincoln bill and admission for ages 5 – 12 is a Lincoln coin. The event is supported, in part, with funds from the New York Council for the Humanities, the Decentralization Program a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by CNY Arts, and with a TAG grant from Madison County Tourism.

The annual NAHOF Antislavery Dinner will be served at 5 p.m. in Coleman Hall, Cazenovia College. Thirty-five dollar reservations are required by October 16.

The Great Emancipator event and the Created Equal Film and Discussion series will both culminate on Sunday, October 25, 2015, in Peterboro at 9:00 am with Abolition Coffee and a guided tour of the Gerrit Smith Estate National Historic Landmark (5304 Oxbow Road Peterboro NY 13134), followed by an Abolition Breakfast and a guided tour of the National Abolition Hall of Fame and Museum (5255 Pleasant Valley Road, Peterboro NY 13134) at 10:30. At11:30 the three part series of The Abolitionists, which is part of theCreated EqualAmerica’s Civil Rights Struggle film series, will begin with Part I of The Abolitionists – along with Abolition Morning Tea. Part II begins at 1:00 pm with Abolition Lunch, and Part III begins at 2:30 with Abolition Dessert. The concluding session at 4:00 p.m.examines Where are We as Abolitionists Today? Sunday, October 25 sessions are free.

Founded in 2005, The National Abolition Hall of Fame and Museum (NAHOFM) honors antislavery abolitionists, their work to end slavery, and the legacy of that struggle, and strives to complete the second and ongoing abolition – the moral conviction to end racism. NAHOFM seeks to increase public awareness of the heritage foundations of equal rights and continue that struggle to complete the goals of the abolition movement in contemporary America.

Reservation forms for the Antislavery Dinner and for tickets are available at nahofm1835@gmail.com,  www.nationalabolitionhalloffameandmuseum, and  315-280-8828. Tickets are also available at Cazenovia Jewelry (49 Albany Street Cazenovia, New York 13035 315-655-9114) and at the door.
