The American Mind: Frederick Douglass

One of the most influential African Americans in the nineteenth century, Douglass advocated for a number of causes, including the abolition of slavery. This seminar will explore those topics.

This program will be conducted as a Socratic discussion, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings (found here), and with the Discussion Leader facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants, therefore, are highly encouraged to read all the documents in advance and come ready with questions. All attendees will receive a Letter of Attendance at the end of the seminar.
