Moral Leadership

May 7 - Our Moral Leadership Series begins with Adam Rothman, Professor of History, Georgetown University, speaking on “Slavery, Abolition, Race, and Moral Leadership: Then and Now.” 

Dr. Rothman’s books, Beyond Freedom's Reach: A Kidnapping in the Twilight of Slavery and Slave Country: American Expansion and the Origins of the Deep South, have received numerous awards.  Dr. Rothman is a member of Georgetown's Working Group on Slavery, Memory, and Reconciliation, and is principal curator of the Georgetown Slavery Archive. 

One of our nation’s experts on slavery and on the slave experience in Georgetown and the D.C. area, Dr. Rothman will speak about the failings of moral leadership in the foundational history of race relations in America, and the potential for a different path for our country in the future.
