Tue, February 5, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Trinity Church Wall Street is hosting a free book talk with Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom author David Blight on Tuesday, February 5, from 7-9pm at St. Paul’s Chapel. Join the Rev. Phillip Jackson, Vicar of Trinity Church Wall Street, as he hosts a Q&A with David Blight, followed by a reception and book signing. This is one of the author’s only public appearances in NYC.
Douglass spent his life working to extinguish racial divisions. He lived to see black emancipation as well as the age of lynching and Jim Crow laws. As one of the greatest orators and writers in American history, Douglass has much to teach us about how he used his powerful voice to challenge inequality.
