Wednesday, August 5, 4:00 PM Eastern Time: *Dr. Tera Hunter*
This year, amid renewed discussion and celebration of Juneteenth, many
people have questions about slavery's destruction during the Civil War. Dr.
Hunter will discuss how enslaved people fought for their own freedom and
that of their families; the relationship of the Emancipation Proclamation
to Juneteenth; why there were so many emancipations; and the importance of
gender and the family in the experience of emancipation.


Thursday, August 13, 4:00 PM Eastern Time: *Dr. Stephanie McCurry*
What was the Confederacy and what did it stand for? These are important
questions in both history classrooms and public debate. Dr. McCurry will
discuss what Confederate leaders believed they were doing; the challenges
they faced both from within the South and outside it; the experiences of
Black and white women in the Confederacy; and the role of women in the
history of war.


Wednesday, August 19, 4:00 PM Eastern Time: *Dr. Thomas J. Brown*
The many Civil War monuments that dot the American landscape continue to
incite controversy. Dr. Brown will explain who built these monuments and
why; what Civil War monuments tell us about American culture; and how the
monuments' meanings have changed over time.
