FDNA 2019 Reading featured on "CBS Sunday Morning"
In their July 5, 2020 broadcast, CBS Sunday Morning featured the "Reading Frederick Douglass Together" grant program that is funded by MassHumanities. FDNA was asked for permission to use clips from our 2019 reading during that broadcast, which also featured the City of Somerville's Reading.
Normally held in our community garden, FDNA had to move indoors in 2019 due to thunderstorms that drenched the area. Messiah Baptist Church graciously opened their doors for us.
When you watch the clip, look for the indoor scenes which feature our readers: Willie A. Wilson., Jr., Fran Jeffries, Mark Linde, Michelle DuBois, and young Ashton Guerlande.
