Frederick Douglass in Winchester

In 1862, a group of Winchester residents invited renowned abolitionist Frederick Douglass to speak at Lyceum Hall (across the street from present-day BookEnds). Explore the speech and its implications today with archivist Dr. Ellen Knight, author Nathan Richardson, and a member of the Mystic Valley NAACP. Hosted by the NFSJ, Winchester Historical Society, and Winchester Anti-Racism Solidarity Collective. Register here.

Since its inception, the Network has been profoundly inspired by the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and sought to thoughtfully engage the community in honoring all that he stood for. For the past three years, this has taken the form of the MLK Day of Service, the last two of which have been held virtually.
Make a donation to the NFSJ today to fund these accessible and creative community-wide celebrations and similar programs to advance an inclusive and anti-racist community in Winchester!
