Frederick Douglass Speaks on Black Resistance
July 20, Cullman Performance Hall, NC History Center
Join former slave, writer, orator and abolitionist, Frederick Douglass, in an hour-long conversation about how he and others like Booker T. Washington, John Mercer Langston, Issac Myers, Ida B. Wells and others, wrote the blueprints for most – if not all modern black institutions of the 20th and 21st century. “Power concedes nothing without a demand.” – Frederick Douglass.
Bring your questions and hear Frederick Douglass explain in his own words how he and other freedom fighters laid the structural foundation for the social, economic and political success in today’s African American community.
Presented by Nathan M. Richardson. Event is FREE to the public.
