School groups are invited to celebrate Black History Month with our Frederick Douglass Living History program. Students will interact with Frederick Douglass, portrayed by Nathan M. Richardson, as he speaks about his life as an enslaved person, his escape to freedom, and rise as a great writer, orator, and abolitionist.
Douglass will strongly emphasize reading and writing, as well as developing a sense of civic responsibility and understanding of the US Constitution. He will also speak on how poets, writers, and speakers of the 19th century used their writing skills to effect change and make the country a more perfect union.
This program is free and designed for grades 4th through 12th.
UPDATE: The 9:30 time slot is full, but we have added another time slot for 10:45.
Registration is required. Call 252-335-1453 to schedule your group.
