Lecture by Kenneth Morris 
Tuesday, May 22, 6:30 pm 
Location: Francis Scott Key Auditorium, St. Johns College 
Kenneth Morris descends from two very important names in American history: he is the great-great-great grandson of Frederick Douglass and great-great grandson of Booker T. Washington.  Mr. Morris will share with the audience how the Douglass legacy has inspired his life and contributed to his work as a social activist.  Attendees will also learn about The Frederick Douglass Family Initiative (FDFI), Morris’ abolitionist organization that combines lessons from the legacies of Frederick Douglass and Booker T. Washington through education.  As culmination to his lecture, Mr. Morris will participate in a youth moderated discussion that explores his  experiences as a Douglass family member.
