I don’t know about you but I love a good party! The smell of sugar and melting candles, cheerfully singing and being surrounded by friends and family and then …………..there is the birthday cake! Join me at an awesome birthday party to celebrate Frederick Douglass on Feb. 13-14, 2015. There are events scheduled throughout the entire community of historic Anacostia to include Douglass re-enactments, a genealogy workshop, book talk with Dianne Dale, a walking tour of Historic Anacostia, tours of Cedar Hill, a scrap booking workshop and an on-going presentation showing participants to preserve old home movies. Feel free to bring on old home movie and it will be seen on a screen for all to see!
