Elliot Engel on “The Inimitable Winston Churchill”
The Joel Lane Museum House, Friday, February 12 at 7pm
Elliot Engel will speak on “The Inimitable Winston Churchill” on Friday, February 12, 2016, at 7 pm at Raleigh Moravian Church, 1816 Ridge Rd, Raleigh, NC 27607. General admission tickets will be $27.00 per person. Advanced purchase is strongly recommended. To purchase tickets, visit http://www.eventbrite.com/e/performance-on-the-inimitable-winston-churchill-by-e... Your tickets will be held at will call. Tickets are non-refundable unless we must cancel the event.

Dr. Elliot Engel has dug deeply into numerous biographies to discover delightful yet virtually unknown details of Churchill’s brilliant career. Using anecdotes, analysis, and LARGE doses of humor, Professor Engel will bring to life this twentieth-century giant.

Originally from Indianapolis, Indiana, Dr. Engel now lives in Raleigh, North Carolina, where he has taught at the University of North Carolina, North Carolina State University, and Duke University. He earned his M.A. and Ph.D. as a Woodrow Wilson Fellow at UCLA. While at UCLA he won that university’s Outstanding Teacher Award. Dr. Engel has written ten books published in England, Japan, and the United States. His mini-lecture series on Charles Dickens ran on PBS television stations around the country. His articles have appeared in numerous newspapers and national magazines including Newsweek. He has lectured throughout the United States and on all the continents including Antarctica. Four plays which he has written have been produced during the last ten years.

For his scholarship and teaching, Dr. Engel has received North Carolina’s Adult Education Award, North Carolina State’s Alumni Professorship, and the Victorian Society’s Award of Merit. Most recently, for his thirty years of academic work and service in promoting Charles Dickens, he was nominated and inducted into the Royal Society of Arts in England. Since 1980, Dr. Engel has been President of the Dickens Fellowship of North Carolina, the largest branch of this worldwide network of clubs.

The sales of Dr. Engel’s books, CDs, and DVDs have raised funds for The Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital which Dickens helped found in London in 1852. Professor Engel continues to teach outside the classroom and give literary and historical programs throughout the world. He also presents assemblies at elementary, middle, and high schools, and his educational CDs are used in classrooms around the country. In his spare time, he enjoys reading, walking, and vacationing in exotic locations where he is not asked to deliver even one lecture. (joellanehouse)

Slavery and Emancipation on ‘the Moses Mordecai Place’ in Raleigh
The Joel Lane Museum House, Thursday, April 14 at 7pm
The JLMH is proud to present a lecture on “Slavery and Emancipation on ‘the Moses Mordecai Place’ in Raleigh” by Doug Porter on Thursday, April 14, 2016 at 7 pm at the Visitors Center of the Joel Lane Museum House at 160 South Saint Mary’s Street, Raleigh, NC 27603. Admission is $16 for the general public and $11 for members of the Joel Lane Historical Society. Refreshments will be served. Seating is limited, and advanced payment is required. Go to the Eventbrite web site to purchase tickets: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/lecture-on-slavery-and-emancipation-on-the-moses-mor... . Be sure to include the names of all in your party; nametags will serve as tickets. Tickets are non-refundable unless we must cancel the event.

The “Moses Mordecai Place” was one of the largest plantations in North Carolina; it covered more than one thousand acres and was home to at least 200 slaves. Looking beyond the “traditional” plantation narrative, Porter will illuminate the lives of those enslaved on the Mordecai Plantation, and also shed light on their lives following freedom in 1865.

Douglas Porter is the Historic Sites Manager for the City of Raleigh. He is a native of Mount Airy, North Carolina, and holds a Ph.D. in History from the University of Mississippi with concentrations in Southern religious history and slavery, emancipation, and the African Diaspora. His primary interest centers on race, class, gender, and religion in nineteenth-century North Carolina. (joellanehouse)
