RIT history professor Richard Newman stands at the gravesite of famed activist and orator Frederick Douglass in Rochester’s Mount Hope Cemetery. Newman is conducting a workshop series sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities that seeks to better educate K-12 history teachers on the influence of 19th century social reform movements on modern politics, culture and society. The series will include a tour of Mount Hope and an examination of the Douglass papers at the University of Rochester.
