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.

The display will be in the Main Branch of the Brockton Public Library in August.
