Washington D.C. - Kenneth Morris, a descendent of Frederick Douglas, will help the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site celebrate its 50th anniversary on Saturday, October 20.
Morris has worked with students to create "New Proclamation of Freedom" in conjunction with the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation.
The New Proclamation, which will be introduced publicly at the FDN Historic Site on Saturday from 1:00 p.m.-2:30 p.m., is dedicated the issue of human trafficking and asks the U.S. Department of Education to kick off a National Human Trafficking Education program.
The event is free and open to the public, and Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton will be in attendance as well.
