This conference webinar was organised by the Frederick Douglass Sculpture Committee (FDSC) to bring attention to a project that has been in the works, and for which the residents in Roxbury have been advocating for over a decade; a Frederick Douglass memorial statue. After a long process, the FDSC and the Boston Art Commission have decided on a site just down the street from the Frederick Douglass Peace Garden on Tremont Street.

The statue, designed in a collaboration between Los Angeles-based sculptor Mario Chiodo and local Roxbury artist Paul Goodnight, pays homage to Douglass' lifelong fight for women's rights, children's education, and the freedom of slaves. [See the video above] --- of the process of creation for the Douglass sculpture---.

Rising Tide Foundation President Cynthia Chung was kindly invited to be a guest speaker to discuss the life and times of Frederick Douglass and how these lessons continue to be just as relevant to us today.
