The pop-up exhibition will showcase a selection of materials pertaining to Douglass and his life, including his three autobiographies, speeches and a selection of letters in Douglass’s own hand from the Gerrit Smith Papers and Sylvester Rosa Koehler Correspondence.
Attendees will have the opportunity to view and engage with the items on display. This event is open to the public, and SCRC staff will be on hand to answer questions about the materials on view and the Center.
The same day, the Syracuse Humanities Center will be hosting the National Douglass Day “transcribe-a-thon” on the first floor of Bird Library, in the Peter Graham Scholarly Commons (Room 114) from noon to 3 p.m.
