Greece Historical Society Program
Rediscovering Frederick Douglass
There was a very large turnout for the Greece Historical Society presentation, Rediscovering Frederick Douglass by Rochester City Historian Christine Ridarsky held on Tuesday, February 14, 2017, at the Greece Public Library.
The program included a screening of “Rediscovering Frederick Douglass,” a film that tells the story of how a previously unknown photograph of famed abolitionist and human rights activist Frederick Douglass was rediscovered. Following the screening Rochester City Historian Christine Ridarsky discussed the photograph, its discovery in the archive she manages, and the process of preserving and documenting it. There was also a viewing of the original photograph.
