The National Park Service Invites You to a Book Discussion on “If I Survive” (Thurs, Sept. 6, 2018, 7pm – 9pm)

Join us on Thursday at 7pm, as historians and authors Celeste-Marie Bernier and Andrew Taylor are on-hand to discuss their book, “If I Survive: Frederick Douglass and Family in the Walter O. Evans Collection” published by Edinburgh University Press.

The book is a collection of 60 previously unpublished speeches, letters and autobiographies, in addition to over 20 photographs and prints (many unseen) of Frederick Douglass and his sons from the Walter O. Evans Collection. This is the first extensive study of the great abolitionist and his family’s fight for the cause of liberty during the Civil War and in the Post-Emancipation era, as well as the first scholarly annotated transcriptions of these previously unpublished materials.

We hope you can join us for this Book Discussion featuring authors Bernier and Taylor!

Copies of the book will also be available for purchase in the site bookstore. #Douglass200
