The Frederick Douglass Years opens at the Anacostia Neighborhood Museum, now the Anacostia Community Museum.  The exhibition explores the life of Frederick Douglass and the times in which he lived--his years as a slave, his escape, the part he played in events leading to the Civil War, his appointment to Assistant Secretary to the Commission of Inquiry to Santo Domingo and as U.S. Marshal of the District of Columbia, and as a resident of Anacostia.
