Looking for Lincoln

The CPCC Libraries are pleased to announce that Lincoln: The Constitution & The Civil War, A Traveling Exhibition to American Libraries is coming to CPCC’s Central Campus July 27-September 9.  This exhibition for libraries, organized by the National Constitution Center and the American Library Association Public Programs Office, has been made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.  

On July 14, the CPCC Libraries will be offering a free screening of the PBS documentary, “Looking for Lincoln”, which will serve as an inaugural event for the arrival of the traveling exhibit.  This film, presented and written by Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., examines the life and legacy of the 16th president of the United States.  By examining evidence from Lincoln’s contemporaries, as well as current Lincoln scholars, Gates looks at many of the controversies surrounding Lincoln.

“Looking for Lincoln” will be shown on July 14 at 1 p.m. in LRC 404.  Free popcorn will be available.  Professional development credit will be offered for faculty and staff.
