WTTW News invites you to Black Voices: A WTTW News Community Conversation, a virtual event on Monday, November 29 at 8:00 pm. Our modern Thanksgiving celebration originated during a tumultuous period in the United States. President Abraham Lincoln issued a proclamation on October 3, 1863, calling for a day of national thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday of November in perpetuity. During the Civil War, some slaves planned their escapes on a given Thanksgiving Day, plotting to flee during the holiday festivities when many of their overseers were likely to be absent or otherwise engaged.
