Support FREE Frederick Douglass Community Conference! [raised $400 towards goal of $1818]

What Would Frederick Douglasss Say

Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Community Conference on Saturday, December 9th at DC Prep’s newly opened Anacostia Elementary Campus, in the old St. Teresa School at 1409 V Street SE.

DC Prep has generously donated space, from 9am – 4pm, to convene a gathering of local and regional Douglassonians in preparation for the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial, which is planned to take place across multiple countries, states, cities and towns throughout 2018.

Despite the recent passing of legislation to create an official government commission very little has been organized and there has been no gathering of Douglassonians — open to the community and general public — in Washington, D.C. in nearly two decades.

The last efforts were led by Dr. Frank Fargasso and Howard University.

Time is running out for Mr. Douglass to get the organized recognition and community collaboration he so righteously and properly deserves.

Funds will be used to support the good folks who are taking their time to present and share the expertise with the the community, food and drink, printing costs and other incidentals.

The figure of $1818 represents the year of the birth of one of the greatest native sons of the United States of America, Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey.

All funds will be used to support the FREE community conference for Anacostians and Douglassonians worldwide.
