Blacks and the Civil War

Here’s Professor Edna Greene Medford of Howard University teaching a class on the role of slavery in bringing on the Civil War and the roles played by African-Americans during the war. This is an outstanding class.

The video’s description reads, “Professor Edna Medford teaches a course on African-American history at Howard University in Washington, D.C. The day’s lecture focused on the meaning of the Civil War to African Americans. Topics included the participation of blacks in the Civil War in fighting for both the North and the South, and President Lincoln’s relationship with Frederick Douglass.”
