Civil Rights & Black Activism in Antebellum Illinois (program begins at 1:15pm)
Northwestern University professor and author Kate Masur will detail the history of the Illinois “Black laws” -- laws that restricted the rights of free African Americans from the state’s founding through 1865 -- and organized efforts to repeal those laws. Among the Illinoisans who demanded repeal were Black leaders John Jones and H. Ford Douglass, as well as white editor Zebina Eastman.
