Bongartz will suggest a progression through which Lincoln eventually began to line up his disdain for slavery with the reality of blacks being fully entitled to the same rights and privileges afforded whites.
Beyond the two-hour basics class there will be a jar-cooling waiting period for any who wish to stay for a “do-it-yourself” guided round two.

One of Jane Beck’s more remarkable discoveries was Daisy Turner and her epic story.
She was the 100 year old daughter of former slaves who was living in Grafton.
Paul Bruhn, Executive Director of The Preservation Trust of Vermont, notes that, “Without Jane’s vision, hard work and perseverance, the Vermont Folklife Center would not have happened.” She has been the recipient of numerous prestigious awards including: The Governor’s Extraordinary Vermonter Award (1990); The American Folklore Society’s Benjamin Botkin Award (1996); and in 2004, the Vermont Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts.
There will also be time for questions and discussion.

When speaking of Susanne Rappaport, Molly Biggs Celani, President of the Board of Trustees of the Slate Valley Museum, reminisced that, “Susanne taught us to see that the history of a place is about the history of the people of that place.” When introducing Jane Beck, Gregory Sharrow, co-executive director, with Andy Kolovos, of the Vermont Folklife Center expressed the feelings of many in attendance, saying, “Thanks to Jane many things that would have remained unknown are known, and many elements of our history that were hidden are revealed.” Ken Moriarty, Chairman of the Hildene Board of Trustees, then presented the awards to Jane Beck and to Eileen Travell, Susanne’s lifelong friend, with praise for their accomplishments.
