Frederick Douglass’ commencement address at Western Reserve College in 1854, along with speeches by Martin Luther King Jr. during his visits to Cleveland, will be featured in a program at Kelvin Smith Library on Tuesday, Feb. 4, from 12:30-2 p.m. in the O’Neill Reading Room on the library’s second floor.
A moderator and a panel will compare the words spoken a century apart by each historical leader and discuss how we can build on their issues that we continue to confront today.
The event is free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided.
