Author Talk: If I Survive The Frederick Douglass Family’s Struggle for Liberty

Wednesday, September 5, 6:30pm

While there have been many public Frederick Douglasses – the abolitionist, the statesman, the orator, the editor, the politician – it is now time to trace the many private lives of Douglass as a family man.

Sharing untold stories, this talk traces the activism, artistry and authorship of Frederick Douglass not in isolation but alongside the sufferings and struggles for survival of his daughters and sons.

Working with unpublished writings, letters and speeches and photographs, we learn that the fight for freedom was a family business to which all the Douglasses dedicated their lives.
A book signing will follow with the author.
