Civil War to Civil Rights

Civil War to Civil Rights: The Well-Being of a NationAs part of The National Civil War Project, we are exploring issues of the Civil War and civil rights in a modern-day context.

From our free Creative Dialogues series to onstage works of art, we hope you will join us in continuing this conversation over the next couple of years.
