Tea with Frederick Douglass at Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion

21mar2:00 pmTea with Frederick Douglass at Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion

Event Details

In 1844, at the age of 26, Frederick Douglass was invited by abolitionists to speak on the lawn of Independence Hall. Douglass had a natural connection with Philadelphia as this was the first Northern city he came to upon his escape. It is a testament to Douglass’ courage that he came to Philadelphia, so close to his old master’s state of Maryland, to give this speech.

In March 2020 Douglass will return to Philadelphia in a one-man show based on one of his most famous speeches. Audience members will have the opportunity to watch and participate as Douglass struggles with the concept of “independence” as it applies to enslaved Africans.

Philadelphia actor, Maurice Tucker, portrays Frederick Douglass.

Written and directed by Shav’on Smith
