A panel discussion was held on the concept of “freedom” and the differences between freedom, privilege, and emancipation. African-American attitudes on feelings of entitlement and if earned freedoms have actually been achieved were also discussed. Topics included the three basic freedoms of movement (migration), religion, and expression and the price historically paid for those freedoms. The panelists responded to questions from members of the audience. Christopher Paul Moore moderated.

“What Passes for Freedom: The 150th Year Celebration of Freedom” was a panel of the 14th annual Harlem Book Fair from the Langston Hughes Auditorium in the New York Public Library’s Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. close
