Lincoln and Haiti: Colonization and Haitian Recognition During the Civil War
As the Civil War continued, lawmakers, abolitionists, and colonizationists debated Federal support for colonization and the relocation of a significant portion of the slave population from the United States to the Caribbean. A panel will discuss Lincoln’s interest in colonization and emancipation, and how the Haiti colonization project influenced the decision to extend U.S. diplomatic recognition to Haiti in 1862. Moderated by Jeffrey R. Kerr-Ritchie, Howard University, panelists include Franklin Knight, John Hopkins University; James D. Lockett, Stillman College; Phillip Magness, American University; and Debra Newman Ham, Morgan State University. This program is presented in partnership with NARA’s Office of Regional Records Services and the Johns Hopkins Center for Africana Studies.
