One hundred and fifty-three years ago on this day, President Abraham Lincoln had issued a preliminary proclamation warning that he would order the emancipation of all slaves in any state that did not end its rebellion against the Union by January 1, 1863.
Today the history and memory of slavery is an important area of study not only in the United States but all around the world, as scholars like Ana Lucia Araujo (Howard University), general editor of the Cambria Studies in Slavery Series, and the following books have shown.
