*Description:

In April, 1863 Frederick Douglass was repeatedly asked this question while he was raising men for the 54th Massachusetts Regiment. Cole’s program will include an excerpted speech and a question and answer period.  Douglass’ answer to the question reflects his feelings on citizenship, duty, equal rights, self-preservation, patriotism and the preservation of the colored man’s rightful place in the history of the United States.
