Dedication to Douglass

Students study the controversy surrounding the proposed Frederick Douglass Circle monument in Central Park. They review the notion of historical inaccuracy by reading and discussing the article, "In Douglass Tribute, Slave Folklore and Fact Collide." Students research and create their own alternative design proposals for the Frederick Douglass monument. Finally they write the text for informative plaques to accompany their monuments.
