D.C. Mondays: The Lost History of Frederick Douglass and D.C. Higher Education
January 30 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm ESTFree
International abolitionist, suffragist, human rights activist, orator and presidential appointee, Frederick Douglass has been studied and profiled within academic circles and popular culture for decades. However, his connections to individual educators and institutions of higher education has evaded scholastic attention. From Bates College in Maine to Tuskegee University in Alabama, Douglass was a frequent presence on campuses across the country.
John Muller will share new research revealing the associations of Frederick Douglass with Columbian College (which became the George Washington University) and Wayland Seminary, a theological institute supported by Columbian College.
