The nineteenth century in America witnessed not just the growth of slavery and the slave trade; but a myriad number of individuals, organizations and political leaders who sought to achieve freedom, civil and political rights through a wide range of methods. These included civil disobedience, public lectures, newspaper writings and ultimately legislation made possible by a Civil War. The social movements, tactics, and strategies are instructive today as models for how to pursue social justice and human rights in our own time.
Clinton Stockwell, Ph.D. is the Executive Director Emeritus of the Chicago Semester program. Currently, he is an Adjunct Professor at the National Louis University and the University of Chicago Graham School. In the Spring of 2022, he is teaching the course: “The Union and the Confederacy: Perspectives on the American Civil War.”
