Frederick Douglass, In Spite of Everything, Optimistic
November 16, 2018
4:00 pm - 5:15 pm
Dudley H. Davis Center
Despite having been an enslaved person, a leading abolitionist for decades, and a witness of the end of Reconstruction and the establishment of Jim Crow, Frederick Douglass had a deep 19th-century belief in progress. David Blight examines this brilliant, prominent, and influential American.
