Taking pride in history as a legacy unfolds


With a legacy spanning over 200 years, the life and feats of abolitionist, Frederick Douglass, are still being uncovered by scholars.

Historian John Muller is hosting a series of lectures on the slave-turned-social reformer, specifically noting Douglass’s mainstay and travels in Western Maryland and how he spoke and lectured in Frederick, Hagerstown and Cumberland back in 1879.

“I think it’s important to tell this local history so people can take pride in their place — pride in where they live whether it’s in Baltimore, D.C., Hagerstown, Cumberland — that there is a history that is important,” said Muller.

Muller will be speaking at the Ebenezer AME Church on February 16 at 2 p.m.
