MHS Calendar of Events
The Furniture of Isaac Vose & Thomas Seymour, 1815 to 1825
Open 11 May to 14 September 2018 Details
Join us in celebrating Frederick Douglass’s Bicentennial alongside three of the country’s leading Douglass scholars. A group discussion will be led by David Blight (Yale University), Lois Brown (Wesleyan University), and John Stauffer (Harvard University) on the relevance of Frederick Douglass today with a focus on the theme, “Democracy and the Informed Citizen.” What is Douglass’s rightful place in American history and how is he relevant to the social and civic concerns of today?
During the event, the projects of student winners of the Mass History Day Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Awards will be on display for guests to view, and the winners will present their projects alongside the three scholars. The afternoon will close with a specially commissioned, Frederick Douglass-themed “choral poem” researched, written, and performed by the young poets of Mass LEAP.
This is a free, public event; you're encouraged to bring friends and family! Free parking is available and there is easy access on the T (Orange line, Roxbury Crossing).
