Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading Presents Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass, A Walk of Respect

The Giving Coast

SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY JAN 8, 2020

In honor of the The Patterson Foundation's Honoring & Onward 10th Anniversary celebration -- in partnership with West Coast Black Theatre Troupe -- you're invited to a theatrical presentation entitled Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass, a Walk to Respect.  Frederick Douglass, a true radical with a fiery spirit, believed in racial equality for everyone. Douglass dedicated his life, writings, and career to abolishing slavery everywhere. Abraham Lincoln, cautious and considered, while opposed to slavery, was first and foremost a patriot intent on preserving the Union at all costs. These two self-made men, at a time when our divided nation faced annihilation, faced their differences with courage and compassion, forging a friendship that helped to end the Civil War and reunite our nation.
