Teaching Freedom and Unfreedom: Frederick Douglass in Indiana and Beyond Educators Workshop

Frederick Douglass is one of the most recognized abolitionist voices in American history. Through his dedication, Douglass traveled the United States using his gifts for public speaking to bring awareness to the horrors of slavery and show Americans how the support for such a system was against the American ideal that all men were created equal. This one-day workshop for Indiana educators will examine Douglass’ speeches in various periods of his life, showing impacts Douglass made in both the nation and in Indiana.
