TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A professor of African-American studies at the University of Massachusetts will deliver the second installment of Washburn University's Lincoln Lecture Series.

Manisha Sinha will present "Race and Equality in the Age of Lincoln" Feb. 6 at 7 p.m. at the Memorial Union. Her lecture is free and open to the public.

Yale University Press is publishing her soon-to-be released "To Live and Die in the Holy Cause: Abolition and the Origins of America's Interracial Democracy." She also wrote "The Counterrevolution of Slavery: Politics and Ideology in Antebellum South Carolina."

Recently, Sinha was a featured commentator on "The Abolitionists," part of the "American Experience" series on PBS.

The Lincoln Lecture Series is among a program of events leading up to Washburn University's sesquicentennial celebration in 2015.
