    "From Slavery to Freedom, From Durham to the World: Commemorating More than Three-Quarters of a Century of Publication," will honor the legacy of historian John Hope Franklin (1915-2009) and his  seminal work, From Slavery to Freedom: A History of African Americans, still in print and still relevant more than 75 years after it was written.

    The two-day event, which is free and open to the public, will take place October 24-25, featuring panel discussions and receptions on both campuses.
