In the words of Frederick Douglass: " We have to do with the past only as we can make it useful to the present and the future."
Ithaca College’s Roy H. Park School of Communications will be supporting The History Center, in partnership with the St. James A.M.E. Zion Church, to bring to life Frederick Douglass’ impassioned 1852 speech. A dramatic reading of Douglass’ speech will take place on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 1 p.m. at the St. James A.M.E. Zion Church, 116 Cleveland Ave Ithaca, New York.
While stumping on behalf of abolitionist Gerrit Smith in his bid for Congress, Douglass visited a number of areas in Central and Upstate New York, delivering impassioned speeches excoriating the inability of politicians to address the evils of slavery and describing a post-slavery America based on the core ideals of opportunity, equality, and democracy.
Two young leaders from South Africa's Shack Dwellers' Movement will lead discussions on housing and human rights and screen the award-winning documentary Dear Mandela at Ithaca College on October 2 in Textor 102 at 7pm.
