Door County Talks: How Many Reconstructions Does It Take to Be Free?: A Meditation on the Long Civil Rights Movement with Dr. Vince Lowery

Date: Saturday, February 8, 2020 | Time: 10 a.m.
With the abolition of slavery, the United States entered the period of Reconstruction, which historian Eric Foner calls “the unfinished revolution.” The meaning of freedom for African-Americans, and in fact all Americans, remained in question. That “revolution” began again in the mid-twentieth century with the civil rights movement, which some historians refer to as the “Second Reconstruction.” Now fifty years removed from that event, in light of the persistence of Jim Crow-style policies and practices, many are calling for a “Third Reconstruction.” In his talk, Vince Lowery will trace the threads connecting these three eras, exploring moments of progress and regression and the road left to travel.
