Share | |

The Frederick Douglass Institute at Cal U will host a lecture by a descendant of the famed orator and abolitionist at 6 p.m. Dec. 7 in Morgan Hall.

Kenneth Morris Jr. will discuss his famous ancestor in an address that commemorates Frederick Douglass’ visit to South Western Normal School, the forerunner of Cal U, on Nov. 20, 1885.

President of the Frederick Douglass Family Foundation, Morris is the great-great-great-grandson of Douglass, one of the foremost leaders of the movement that fought to end slavery in the United States in the decades prior to the Civil War.
