Douglass At Home & Abroad

Explore the many places Douglass spoke around the world.

Among the many perspectives Douglass’ life illuminates is the truism that local identity and global outlook need not contradict one another; on the contrary, they enrich and deepen one another. Washingtonians who already know and love Douglass seek to know and understand more about his international influence. Similarly, Douglass has fans around the globe who are interested in learning more about his home place and drawing connections between it and their locales, especially the ones that Douglass visited. Like Douglass himself, the people, organizations, and institutions in the District nurture a proudly local identity and community even while welcoming the rest of the country and the world.
