Please join the City of Brockton's Frederick Douglass Neighborhood Association as we unveil, dedicate and celebrate our "Stride Toward Freedom, Together" Walkway and signs. The date is November 15, 2015.
The panels will tell the story of four civil rights icons from around the world whose lives are connected to that of Frederick Douglass. Meet the artists, the scholars, and the students who have worked tirelessly to make this Walkway a reality.
During the one hour ceremony we will hear about the history of the Avenue and the Underground Railroad in Brockton, the story of the fire at the Ardmore Hotel that once stood on this site, and the story of our four honorees. Most importantly, we will get to thank all of the volunteers, supporters and members who walk with us as we build common ground, community spirit, and pride in our neighborhood and our history.
The garden is located on Frederick Douglass Avenue, which runs one way from Main Street to Warren Avenue. Parking lots are available on the street next to the garden for your convenience.
The event will take place rain or shine.
