After Obama:  Race and Politics in Cincinnati was just one of the eleven town halls throughout the country exploring issues of race, equality, social justice and history.  Inspired by Abraham Lincoln’s efforts to build an equal opportunity society, the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission’s Lincoln Legacy Town Hall Meeting series seeks to build mutual understanding about differing perspectives on race and ethnicity and provide an opportunity to re-examine what it means to be American in the 21st century.


The ALBC Town Hall Series is made possible with support from the Fetzer Institute.
