Program Description

Event Details

Celebrate Black History Month by joining us for a talk with Frederick Douglass National Historic Site Park Ranger Kevin W. Bryant. Learn more about Frederick Douglass, and how his home came to be part of the National Parks System.

Frederick Douglass spent his life fighting for justice and equality. Born into slavery in 1818, he escaped as a young man and became a leading voice in the abolitionist movement. People everywhere still find inspiration today in his tireless struggle, brilliant words, and inclusive vision of humanity. Douglass's legacy is preserved at Cedar Hill, the house where he lived his last 17 years, in Washington, D.C.
