Now in its 7th year, and back to the museum by popular demand, don’t miss this virtual stop on the Frederick Douglass Speaking Tour. Poet, author and spoken word performer Nathan M. Richardson captures the physical and spiritual essence of the great writer, orator and abolitionist Frederick Douglass. In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment that guaranteed women's constitutional right to vote, Richardson will share Douglass’ views on women’s rights.

As Douglass, Richardson will share the story of his life; followed by an excerpt recital of his 1848 speech to the International Council of Women in Seneca Falls, NY, on "Woman Suffrage." He’ll concluding the program by answering questions from the virtual audience via Facebook comments about his letters and activism supporting such notable women as Lucretia Mott, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Harriet Tubman, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth, Victoria Woodhull and the role of Native-American Women in the movement.
