“The great mission of the nineteenth century approaches its fruition” These words, spoken by Charles D. Drake at the Freedom Convention in 1864, describe the hope of a community that had long been enslaved. In 1865, the Thirteenth Amendment was ratified, making slavery illegal in the United States.

Pen Bogert will present the historical background of emancipation celebrations in Louisville and Southern Indiana. His lecture will explain the differences and similarities in how they celebrated emancipation.

Pen Bogert worked at The Filson as a reference specialist from 1996-2006. His main research interest is African American history, particularly slavery, slave trading, underground railroad, and music. He is writing a book on the history of slave trading in Kentucky.
