Join us for a special celebration of Frederick Douglass's Bicentennial! As part of Mass History Day this year, high school and middle school students from across the state submitted projects related to Douglass, African American history and more; the winners of the competition will be on hand to receive cash awards and to present their projects alongside noted Douglass scholars David Blight (Yale University), Lois Brown (Wesleyan University), and John Stauffer (Harvard University). After the forum, the afternoon will close with a specially commissioned, Fredrick Douglass-themed "choral poem" researched, written, and performed by high school student poets.
