I am truly humbled by the opportunity to discuss Frederick Douglass in Washington, DC: The Lion of Anacostia at the Library of Congress’ Mary Pickford Theater (3rd Floor, Madison Building) on Thursday, June 20th at 12 Noon.
While the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library’s Adult Literary Resource Center (and Washingtoniana Division) will always be from whence I came, the book could not have been written without the Library of Congress.
LOC holds the Frederick Douglass Papers. With the expertise shared by the world-class staffs of the Law Library, Newspapers & Current Periodical Reading Room, Manuscript Reading Room, and online resources such as Chronicling America and the “Ask a Librarian” service, the book became a reality. On June 20th I’m looking forward taking a moment to further thank the staff of LOC for all of their help. I truly cannot thank them enough.
