Annual Frederick Douglass Community Read-A-Thon

Coming up this Sunday, Feb. 21, the Frederick Douglass "mini-marathon." This is an annual reading of The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave, mounted by the New Bedford Historical Society (details on their site).

This is a great event. Only four hours long, yet it is moving in ways the MDM can never be.
