See this documentary if you can, Rediscovering Frederick Douglass is a wonderful example of how local collections and institutions can bring history to life! It is a cool story of how the technology of photography and the life of Frederick Douglass intertwined.

Mayor Lovely A. Warren announced today –on Frederick Douglass’ 199th birthday– that the documentary “Rediscovering Frederick Douglass,” will make its broadcast debut on TV during Black Heritage Month on both City 12 TV and WXXI-HD. The program will air at 7 and 10 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 21 on City 12 and at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 28 on WXXI-HD.

DVDs are also available for borrowing at all City branch libraries. In addition, DVDs are being donated to all Rochester City School District secondary schools.

Rediscovering Frederick Douglass documents the story of how a photograph of famed abolitionist and eminent human rights leader Frederick Douglass—not seen for more than a century—was discovered in the Rochester Public Library. The historic photo, found during routine repairs of a scrapbook in the Library’s Special Collections, was shared with the public at a special unveiling ceremony at City Hall during Black History Month last year.

“Frederick Douglass is one of Rochester’s most notable citizens. Douglass, a former slave and eminent human rights leader, was profoundly aware of the power photography, as demonstrated in his writings and speeches. We are thrilled to share this story with the community,” said Mayor Warren. “It’s important that we continue to remember the sacrifices he made during his extraordinary life in his tireless fight to abolish slavery as well as his contributions to the women’s suffrage movement. ‘Rediscovering Frederick Douglass’ gives us a new opportunity to honor his legacy and also share his story beyond Rochester.”

Happy Birthday Frederick Douglass!

From the Genesee Country Village & Museum: We are often asked; "What do you DO during the winter when you're closed?" Aside from busily planning events for the season, scheduling, and training staff, we also get to do things like keep our farm animals working and in shape. A few days ago, our farmers took Buck and Dan, our team of oxen, as well as Tom the horse, out for a day of logging. Here's a peek behind the scenes!
