HISTORY HAPPY HOUR: FREDERICK DOUGLASS IN WASHINGTON DC

December 7 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

The remarkable journey of Frederick Douglass from fugitive slave to famed orator and author is well documented, yet little has been written about Douglass’s final years in Washington, D.C.

John Muller, journalist, historian, playwright, tour guide, and policy analyst in Washington, D.C., has developed a specialized knowledge of the history of the Anacostia community, the city’s first sub-division. His book, Frederick Douglass in Washington D.C.: The Lion of Anacostia (2012), was selected as the DC Public Library’s 2013 DC Reads. His articles on the area’s history and neighborhood politics have appeared in Huffington Post, Washington Post and Washington Times, among other publications. Muller and has given programs at the Library of Congress, the Newseum, and other local and national venues.

History Happy Hours include happy hour drinks and snacks.  The series is sponsored by Therrien Waddell Construction Group.
