Frederick Douglass Day

September 26 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Frederick Douglass Honor Society invites you to join in 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.”

A statement from the Frederick Douglass Honor Society website concerning 2020’s Frederick Douglass Day: “Due to the “new normal” which we as a country are now experiencing, the Frederick Douglass Day Committee is determining how to proceed with Frederick Douglass Day 2020.

Rest assured, There will be a Frederick Douglass Day! Just be aware it may differ from years past but there will be more details to follow.”
