Dear Readers:

We had a fantastic, wide-ranging discussion last night of the autobiographical writings of Frederick Douglass.  Head over to the blog to read more about our discussion and for links to the many additional books and resources we discussed.  Thanks to all of our participants for your thoughtful and insightful input.

Our presentation by David F. Walker, author of the graphic history The Life of Frederick Douglass, is this Monday, June 28 at 7pm!  The Zoom invitation is below.  

There's more to read for July, too.  Our challenge goals include The Portable Frederick Douglass 'Speeches' section, as well as Parts 1 and 2 of The Good Lord Bird. Those discussions will take place the last week of July.
