This lecture, drawn from Professor Masur’s new book (Norton, 2021) will discuss the broad-based northern movement for racial equality before the Civil War and how it shaped national politics and, ultimately, the Constitution. She’ll devote special attention to developments in Ohio, where the movement was particularly successful. Kate Masur is Associate Professor of History at Northwestern University. This event is co-sponsored by the CWRU Departments of History, Sociology and Political Science and Western Reserve Historical Society.
