The Princeville Heritage Museum in conjunction with the Lillie M. Evans Library will be presenting the final program in our Lincoln series entitled, the Anti-Slavery Movement in Black & White by Jeanne Schultz Angel.  This free program will be held at the Museum on Tuesday, April 29th 6:30pm.  The state of Illinois played a prominent role during the anti-slavery movement in the mid-19th Century. But were all Illinoisans who were against slavery also supportive of the Underground Railroad, or even racial equality? Understanding the differences between those who were 'anti-slavery' and those who were 'radical abolitionists' is important to both understanding how the Underground Railroad was viewed in Illinois, and also determining which of its sites are verifiable. Explore the history behind the anti-slavery movement in Northern Illinois and examine the criteria historians use to separate fact from fiction.
