12th Grade English Commemorates Frederick Douglass’s 200th Birthday

This Wednesday, the 12th grade celebrated the bicentennial of Frederick Douglass. The class is currently reading Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass. Douglass wrote his slave narrative in 1845 about his life as a slave and his escape to the North, where he became an outspoken abolitionist. The class commemorated his birthday by reading poems about Douglass and watching videos of some of his more well known speeches read by current-day actors. Students also read from famous Douglass quotes, such as, “If there is no struggle, there is no progress,” “the soul that is within me, no man can degrade,” and, “it is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”
