Celebrate the life and legacy of activist, orator, and statesman Frederick Douglass!
Join Washington Revels Jubilee Voices at the Opening Ceremonies for this annual program celebrating the “Lion of Anacostia,” Frederick Douglass. The celebration includes music by the Jubilee Voices and D.C. Strings, performances by the student winners of the Frederick Douglass Oratorical Contest and a light-hearted debate-style program that asks the question, “What place did Frederick Douglass call home?” Douglass lived in 3 states and the District of Columbia during his lifetime and while it’s impossible to ask Douglass this question, our panelists will support their positions in the debate, and we’ll let the audience decide!
The Opening Ceremony begins at 2 p.m. (doors open early at 12:30 p.m.).
Reservations are not required.
