​Celebrate Frederick Douglass' birthday week with an engaging lecture given by Dr. John Stauffer, Harvard University professor and author of Picturing Frederick Douglass: An Illustrated Biography of the Nineteenth Century's Most Photographed American.

Picturing Frederick Douglass is a work that promises to revolutionize our knowledge of race and photography in nineteenth-century America. Teeming with historical detail, it is filled with surprises, chief among them the fact that neither George Custer nor Walt Whitman, and not even Abraham Lincoln, was the most photographed American of that century. In fact, it was Frederick Douglass.

Learn how Frederick Douglass became the most photographed American of the 19th Century at this special event.
