Evening at Egan lecture to focus on Abraham Lincoln

Posted: November 2, 2011 - 11:02pm

This week’s Evening at Egan lecture will be “The Southerner: Abraham Lincoln as a White Supremacist Hero” led by David Noon, Assistant Professor of History, University of Alaska Southeast. It begins at 7 p.m. Friday in the Egan Lecture Hall.

This talk by UAS Social Sciences Department Chair Noon will focus on the ways that Southern novelists at the beginning of the 20th century re-imagined Abraham Lincoln as a lifelong believer in white supremacy and a man who, had he lived, would have proven to be a great friend to the defeated South.

By looking at this somewhat unorthodox interpretation of Lincoln, we can begin to think about the flexibility of historical memory and ponder the ways that Americans have used Lincoln, perhaps more so than any other historical figure, to support their own values and beliefs.
