We will begin with a selected tour of art in MAG's collection that reflects on the life and legacy of Frederick Douglass, and the issues that defined his life. Following the tour of the art, we will view Lessons of the Hour, a beautiful multi-screen media installation inspired by episodes in the life of Frederick Douglass. After seeing the installation, we will have an opportunity to grab a seat and discuss what we saw, what it tells us about Frederick Douglass and most importantly how his story may be viewed today. Join us for a unique opportunity to celebrate Frederick Douglass. Included in Museum admission.
