Due Process turns to two nationally-recognized experts for answers: Rutgers Distinguished History Professor Clement Price, Director of the University’s Institute on Ethnicity, Culture and the Modern Experience, and Columbia University Historian Eric Foner, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book, “The Fiery Trial, Lincoln and Slavery.”
