Mid-South Student’s Connection To Emancipation Proclamation

Santeria Pratt was one of the first Tennesseans to see and welcome the original Emancipation Proclamation to our state.

She submitted a letter written to Annie Davis, a slave, explaining her perspective as a student in the 21st century on the 13th Amendment and what America is like 150 years after the Emancipation Proclamation.

She also met the curators from the National Archives in Washington D.C. who brought the Emancipation Proclamation to Tennessee, and participated in a press preview of the document.
