Overview

Women were a crucial part of Frederick Douglass’ development as an equal rights activist and preserving his memory for generations to come. Brittany Hall is a scholar of African American history and park ranger at the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site. She studies the history of 19th century visual culture, with a special interest in the the preservation of Frederick Douglass’ final home as a historic house museum. Ms. Hall’s talk will emphasize the important role of women in shaping Frederick Douglass’ public image, before and after his death.
