Douglass Bicentennial Traveling Exhibit (Brockton)
To honor the Bicentennial Celebration, the Frederick Douglass Neighborhood Assocation has created a traveling exhibit that tells the amazing story of Frederick Douglass and connects him to the diversity of Brockton today. Original pieces by Brockton artists highlight the connection of Douglass to Haiti, Cape Verde, Ireland, women and veterans. The display will be in the Main Branch of the Brockton Public Library in August.
