Author Talk: If I Survive
The Frederick Douglass Family’s “Struggle for
Liberty” by Celeste-Marie Bernier
 
Wednesday, September 5, 6:30pm
 
While there have been many public Frederick Douglass – the
abolitionist, the statesman, the orator, the editor, the politician
– it is now time to trace the many private lives of Douglass as a
family man. Sharing untold stories, this talk traces the activism,
artistry and authorship of Frederick Douglass not in isolation but
alongside the sufferings and struggles for survival of his daughters
and sons. Working with unpublished writings, letters and
speeches and photographs, we learn that the fight for freedom
was a family business to which all the Douglasses dedicated their
lives. A book signing will follow with the author.
