Anacostia AMP Youth Sports Association keeps alive Douglassonian tradition of uplifting next generation of youngsters

Frederick Douglass & HillsdaleYesterday I had opportunity to attend a practice of the Anacostia Steelers in Anacostia Park. While walking to the pool I came across artwork recognizing the connection between Dr. Frederick Douglass and the communities of Hillsdale and Barry Farm.

While in Washington City the Douglass family invested in the uplifting of local children and their families through education, employment, political activism and participation and even sports.

Coach Tony of the Anacostia Steelers and Ms. Paige of the Anacostia AMP Youth Sports Association, and all of their support coaches, volunteers and parents are keeping the Douglassonian tradition of uplifting the next generation of youngsters alive.

For more information please “LIKE” the Facebook page for the Anacostia Steelers and the Anacostia AMP Outreach & Empowerment Center.
