The Emancipation Proclamation represents something that all Americans are connected to, the long evolution of building a better union.  We researched the motivations, opinions, and struggles of African Americans from the enactment of the Emancipation Proclamation through the Jim Crow the civil rights eras, to the election of President Obama.
