Frederick Douglass Day Virtual Celebration

September 25, 2021

The Frederick Douglass Honor Society is pleased to announce that this year’s virtual Frederick Douglass Day celebration will feature world renown authors David Blight, John Stauffer and Celeste-Marie Bernier and Keidrick Roy, a PhD candidate at Harvard University. Blight and Roy will host a one-hour lecture with questions and answers to follow. Authors Blight, Stauffer and Bernier will share their thoughts on a personal favorite Frederick Douglass book penned by each other.

The Frederick Douglass Honor Society, along with the Talbot County Free Library, the Town of Easton and Talbot County, invites you to join the celebration of the life and legacy of Talbot County native Frederick Douglass, one of the nation’s most prominent figures in African-American and United States history.  An abolitionist, editor, orator, author, statesman, women’s suffragist and reformer, Douglass was a firm believer in equality for all people and was fond of saying, “I would unite with anybody to do right and with nobody to do wrong.”
