Frederick Douglass in Indiana: Black Resistance Pre and Post Civil War

$8 IHS Member; $12 General Public

Celebrate and learn about the life and times of one of the greatest African American orators and social reformers in history and his connections to Indiana. After escaping slavery, Frederick Douglass traveled extensively across the country with other abolitionists, surviving a vicious attack in Pendleton, Ind., in 1843, and returning to Noblesville, Ind., in 1880.

Learn more about Douglass’s connections to Indiana with IHS African American Collections Curator Susan Hall-Dotson while exploring archival documents, viewing the Life & Times of Frederick Douglass (1893) on display in our Documents That Shaped America exhibit, and listening to orated excerpts of pivotal Douglass speeches. Light refreshments will be provided.

Sponsored by the Robin and Charlitta Winston Fund for African American History.

In partnership with ASALH-Association for the Study of African American Life and History, Joseph Taylor Branch Indianapolis, ASALH established in 1915 by Founder Carter G. Woodson.
