Lincoln: The Man Behind the Movie

Lincoln movie

The 2012 biopic Lincoln is poised to sweep the Academy Awards later this month, with nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, and nine others.  Before you watch the Oscars, tune into KPR Presents, 8:00 Sunday evening, to learn about the man behind the movie.  Historian Richard Norton Smith was the founding director of the Dole Institute of Politics at the University of Kansas; he left KU in 2003 to become the director of the acclaimed Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, Illinois.  Smith will also  talk about the 2013 Presidential Lecture series currently underway at the Dole Institute: "In the Beginning: Three Men Who Made America," featuring lectures on Presidents George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson.
