      John Stauffer on the Legacy of Frederick Douglass

      Scholar and best-selling author Dr. John Stauffer shares reflections on the legacy of Frederick Douglass, in conjunction with our special exhibit Frederick Douglass: AGITATOR.

      "If there is no struggle, there is no progress." –Frederick Douglass

      In many ways, the progress Douglass sought is still not fully realized, yet the struggle and resistance he helped establish continues. At this special event, Stauffer discusses Douglass's enduring legacy, as well as his continued relevance and how his words remain impactful in today's world.

      John Stauffer is the Sumner R. and Marshall S. Kates Professor of English and of African and African American Studies at Harvard University. He is the author or editor of 20 books and more than 100 articles, which mostly focus on antislavery, social protest, or photography. "GIANTS: The Parallel Lives of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln" was a national bestseller. "The Black Hearts of Men" was the co-winner of the Frederick Douglass Book Prize and the Lincoln Prize 2nd Place winner. "Picturing Frederick Douglass" was a Lincoln Prize finalist.
