The Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Exhibit will be on display at Baltimore City Hall in the north gallery. The exhibit will chronicle Douglass life with special emphasis on his time in Baltimore, involvement the Underground Railroad, Civil War and post 1865. The exhibit will include pictures, maps, quilts, dvds and other state of the art exhibit items honoring one of America’s great iconic figures of the 19th century. One of the primary goals of the project to invite Maryland public, private and charter school students to Baltimore City Hall to tour the exhibit and learn more about Frederick Douglass and his lifelong efforts as an advocate for freedom, justice and equality.
This is the best information we got. Looks like FD’s image is on the cover of the monthly Baltimore magazine give-away distributed at museums and tourist locations. I’ll try to get up there before Feb. 1 and/or gather harder intelligence before this exhibit opens.
Information out of Baltimore is rather unclear in terms of what is being done and who is doing it? The Mayor’s Office? Enoch Pratt? The Maryland Historical Society, located in Baltimore? Morgan State? Johns Hopkins? The city historical society and city college / university? The Fells Point Preservation Society?
Not sure Washington City is any better …
