Stanley Elkins, associate professor of history at Smith College and the author of “The First Emancipation,” is the speaker. The noted historian speaks about the 3.5 million slaves who lived on the border of the Confederate Union in 1861-1876.
This is the first part of the third lecture in a series of ten lectures delivered by distinguished professors from around the nation on African Americans' struggle against poverty, ignorance, and prejudice, and contributions to American culture during a ten-day seminar sponsored by the UC-Berkeley Extension Service. There was time left over in the allotted broadcasting slot, so Philip Elwood filled the remainder of the time with songs performed by the Reverend F. W. McGee and his choir from around 1927 (on BB0440.03B).
