This Saturday is the Emancipation Day 150th Anniversary Great Debate. Held at the historic Lincoln Theatre, the event is a celebration of the freeing of Slaves in Washington, DC. Nine months before the Emancipation Proclamation, Lincoln freed the slaves in Washington DC, making the District home to the first freed slaves.
