Douglass Day Celebration

Frederick Douglass Frederick Douglass
On Valentine's Day 2019, we invite you to a 201st 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. We'll commemorate his birthday by reading and discussing Black authored texts by and about Douglass and his wife Anna Douglass. Opening remarks will be made by library staff, and we'll celebrate with cake and treats. We will also be live-streaming simultaneous events occurring at the African American Museum of Philadelphia and the Colored Conventions Project at the University of Delaware.
