Frederick Douglass NOW

  • Grand Performances 350 South Grand Avenue Los Angeles, CA (map)

Artist-educators Roger Guenveur Smith and Lula Washington celebrate the bicentennial of pioneering abolitionist and feminist Frederick Douglass in an electric evening of solo movement and performance featuring percussionist Marcus Miller. Douglass’ classic 19th-century texts inspire a radically remixed vision of the present American moment.
