African Americans during the Civil War

Thurs., February 11 * 10 PM ET / 7 PM PT on Clubhouse

History Club is recognizing Black History Month throughout the month of February.

This week, we’ll ask: What roles did African Americans play in the U.S. Civil War? How did Black Americans contribute to emancipation? What are those legacies today?

Our guest is retired Brig. Gen. Ty Seidule, former head of the history department at West Point.

Join us on Clubhouse Thursday night at 10 ET. We’ll do a 1-on-1 conversation, followed by audience Q&A. (Add to calendar.)
