Dr. David Blight of Yale University explores the life and times of Frederick Douglass, who was born into slavery in Maryland, escaped to freedom in the 1830s, and emerged as a maverick and leading abolitionist in the North in the decades before the Civil War. A well-known highly controversial figure, Douglass remained a strident voice for civil rights through his death in 1895. Dr. Blight explored these themes in his 2019 book, “Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom,” which received the Pulitzer Prize in History. Dr. Blight is the Sterling Professor of History, African American Studies, and American Studies; Director, Gilder Lehrman Center. His talk marks the 16h annual Aronson Memorial Lecture, named for a devoted volunteer at St. Paul’s in the 1980s and 1990s. Arrive early, at 12 noon, for a musical performance "Words into Music," featuring Pam Sklar on flute, playing originals and covers, accompanied by oboe and clarinet.
