Douglass Day

Douglass Day is an international celebration honoring the life and work of Frederick Douglass and Black History Month, and takes place annually on Douglass' chosen birthday—February 14th. We welcome anyone with an interest in Black history, joy, art, foodways, etc. to join us to transcribe digitized images from Douglass' “General Correspondence, 1841-1912” held at the Library of Congress in DC. The correspondence includes letters from and about Douglass to family members, activists, politicians, and organizations before and after his death in 1895.
