The 2021 Donald L. Hollowell Lecture "History, Human Rights, and the Power of One"
Take a living history journey with a direct descendant of two of America’s most influential heroes. Kenneth B. Morris, Jr. is the great-greatgreat-grandson of Frederick Douglass and the greatgreat-grandson of Booker T. Washington. Ken will give a dynamic virtual presentation about his famous family’s history, the pressure he felt growing up in the shadow of his esteemed ancestors, and his work today to end systems of exploitation and oppression as President of Frederick Douglass Family Initiatives (FDFI) (fdfi.org). He will also share information about FDFI’s project, promoting equity, literacy, and civic engagement called One Million Abolitionists. This is a 60th desegregation anniversary event.
