Introduction1
Introduction

  • Lincoln’s personal and political evolution

  • Textbooks over simplify Lincoln’s view on slavery and racism

  • Lincoln’s motives are arguable among sources

  • Students should be presented with the whole picture to understand Lincoln’s decisions and creation of Emancipation Proclamation

“If textbooks recognized Lincoln’s racism,

students would learn that racism

not only affected Ku Klux Klan extremists

but has been ‘normal’ throughout history”

-Loewen, 2007, p. 182

Loewen, 2007; Peterson, 2002
