Frederick Douglass Day 2021: Frederick Douglass Day 2021

Frederick Douglass Day 2020

On February 12, 2021, we invite you to a birthday party for Frederick Douglass. Although Douglass was born into bondage, and never knew his birthdate, he chose to celebrate every year on February 14th (observed on February 12th this year). We celebrate this day as a moment for preserving Black history together. Join us online or at local events to help transcribe, read, and teach the papers of Mary Church Terrell, a visionary Black feminist. Her work influenced generations, yet today she is under appreciated. Help us share her writings & legacy with future generations! This year we're having a hybrid event.  Stay tuned for details.
