Frederick Douglass Day

The Frederick Douglass Honor Society and the Town of Easton are sponsoring Frederick Douglass Day on Saturday, September 26, 2015. They will celebrate the life and legacy of Talbot County native Frederick Douglass, one of the nation’s most prominent figures in African-American and United States history. An abolitionist, editor, orator, author, statesman, women’s suffragist, and reformer, Douglass was a firm believer in equality for all people and was fond of saying, “I would unite with anybody to do right and with nobody to do wrong.” The celebration will be held in downtown Easton from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and will feature a variety of activities to educate and inspire the community about Frederick Douglass – focusing not only on his historical impact but also how his writings continue to influence and shape our future. We will present activities that will include oral history booth to capture the stories of our community; inspirational readings by young leaders; a family scavenger hunt related to the history of Talbot County; knowledge fair with booths that showcase community organizations and programs; live music; and food and craft vendors. Frederick Douglass Day is an important time to commemorate a great American hero and discuss how we can learn from the past to build a strong and just future. Event takes place at various locations in Downtown Easton. Visit
