African Americans Remember Lincoln

Here’s Professor Kate Masur discussing the book, They Knew Lincoln by John Washington. This is an excellent presentation.

The video’s description reads, “Historian Kate Masur discussed They Knew Lincoln, a book written by John Washington and first published in 1942. It tells the stories of African Americans who knew and worked for President Lincoln and first lady Mary Todd Lincoln. Ms. Masur edited a newly released edition of the book. President Lincoln’s Cottage in Washington, D.C. hosted this event.”
