Center for the Humanities | Robert S. Levine: Impeachment – Frederick Douglass and Andrew Johnson after the Civil War

October 19, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

In this Humanities Without Boundaries talk, Robert Levine will bring to dramatic life Frederick Douglass’s conflicts and interactions with Andrew Johnson during the 1865–1868 period—the years immediately following the Civil War and the years of Johnson’s troubled presidency. This focus will offer a new African American perspective on the events leading up to Johnson’s impeachment, and on the impeachment itself.
Robert S. Levine is Distinguished University Professor of English at the University of Maryland, College Park.
