Celebrating Frederick Douglass: A Bicentennial Forum
Join us in celebrating Frederick Douglass’s Bicentennial alongside three of the country’s leading Douglass scholars. A group discussion will be led by David Blight, Lois Brown, and John Stauffer on the relevance of Frederick Douglass today with a focus on the theme, “Democracy and the Informed Citizen.” What is Douglass’s rightful place in American history and how is he relevant to the social and civic concerns of today?
Before the event and during the reception afterwards, the projects of student winners of the Mass History Day Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Awards will be on display for guests to view. There will be drinks and snacks available at the reception following the event. After the forum, the afternoon will close with a specially commissioned, Frederick Douglass-themed “choral poem” researched, written, and performed by the young poets of Mass LEAP.
