This past spring has been quite busy in the Frederick Douglass world, and for Women in the World of Frederick Douglass. Much gratitude to everyone who has read the book, to everyone who has purchased the book, and to everyone who has expressed in any way their appreciation of it by reading it, buying it, coming to a talk, talking to me about Douglass and the women in his life, inviting me to talk about it, and awarding the book a prize.
Here is a video of a talk that I gave at the "Frederick Douglass at 200" symposium at Linfield College in McMinville, Oregon, in April.:
The full playlist of speakers can be found here. They include Diana Schaub, David Blight (who gives us an outline of his upcoming and eagerly anticipated biography of Douglass, out in October), Melvin Rogers, and Ibram Kendi. They are all fantastic, and it was an honor to share the program with them.
