Anna Murray Douglass
February 9 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Rose O’Keefe will talk about how Anna Murray Douglass is often lost in the shadow of Fredrick Douglass. She was the one to hold their home life together no matter how often he was on the road. Their house was on the Underground Railroad so Anna was accustomed to all kinds of people showing up on her doorstep – any time of day or night. She had to watch her every word and present a calm face to the world.
