The Unfinished Agenda of Frederick Douglass in the 21st Century
Lynn Library, Lynn

Using storytelling and critical inquiry, facilitator Francine Smith will engage the audience in a dialogue about racial justice today. She will use excerpts from “Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass an American Slave,” “The Origin of Others” by Toni Morrison, and excerpts from her short stories entitled “Stories I Want to Tell My Daughter.” The storytelling will present an overview of the nation’s history of white supremacy and efforts to build racial justice. The first 50 participants will receive a free copy of Morrison’s book.
