Carnegie hosting Lunch & Learn

From noon to 1 p.m. Tuesday, May 21, at the Carnegie Center for Art and History in New Albany, historian Pen Bogert will present the program “Celebrating Emancipation in New Albany and Louisville,” as part of the Lunch & Learn series. 

“The great mission of the 19th century approaches its fruition.” These words, spoken by Charles D. Drake at the Freedom Convention in 1864, describe the hope of a community that had long been enslaved. In 1865, the 13th Amendment was ratified, making slavery illegal in the United States. Bogert will present the historical background of emancipation celebrations in Louisville and Southern Indiana and explain the differences and similarities in how the communities celebrated emancipation.  

Participants can bring a lunch, drinks are provided. This program is free, but registration is required by calling 812-944-7336 or email dthomas@ carnegiecenter.org
