This week, Harvard scholar Dr. John Stauffer discusses the legacy of Frederick Douglass, particularly his use of early photography. This lecture was recorded live at the American Writers Museum in March 2019.
Quick programming note: Dr. Stauffer used photographs to go along with his presentation. If you would like to see those, you can watch this program in its entirety here on YouTube. They are also available in Dr. Stauffer’s book Picturing Frederick Douglass and, additionally, some photos are available in our virtual Frederick Douglass: Agitator exhibit.

We hope you enjoy entering the mind of a writer.
