As part of a day-long visit to Morgan State University by acclaimed actor/writer/director, Roger Guenveur Smith, MSU's SWAN program hosts Mr. Smith performing his genre-blending monologue, "Frederick Douglass Now!" This one-man play, conceived, written and performed by Smith, about one of America's greatest public intellectuals, combines spoken-word and sermon, hip-hop and historic quotes. The one-man play has been lauded by a number of publications, including Variety, The New York Times, and Playbill.
Frederick Douglass is one of the most extraordinary figures in U.S. history: a self-liberated slave, orator, publisher, and pioneering feminist who pleaded the case for abolition before Abraham Lincoln and made plans with the President for moving freed enslaved Africans to the North during the Civil War. Douglass lived from 1818 to 1895.
