Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Nov. 10: "'As Fast As Circumstances Should Permit': Abraham Lincoln's Move Toward Equality"


Lecture by Dr. Gerald Prokopowicz, former Lincoln Scholar and Director of Public Programs at the Lincoln Museum in Ft. Wayne

Where: Indiana History Center, Basile Theater, 450 W. Ohio St. Free parking in the lot at the corner of New York and West Streets.

Is Abraham Lincoln really the Great Emancipator? Recent critics have argued Lincoln was reluctant to abolish slavery and only issued the Emancipation Proclamation as a means to further the interests of white Americans. What were Lincoln's political, military, and humanitarian reasons behind the Emancipation Proclamation? Dr. Prokopowicz, one of the country’s leading Lincoln specialists, will discuss the complexity of these issues and how Lincoln's move toward equality forever changed American race relations. Time for Q&A will be allotted after the lecture.

Presented by Abraham Lincoln Association of Indiana and Indiana Historical Society. Questions? Call 232-1878 or e-mail cwood@indianahistory.org.
