An afternoon to uplift the spirit...

Coming up Sunday, Feb. 12, 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. (The Society's Facebook page is more current than its website.)

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

See previous posts about this reading.
