Happy 200th Birthday Frederick Douglass!Happy 200th Birthday Frederick Douglass!University of Delaware LibraryThis Valentine's Day, we invite you to a 200th birthday party for Frederick Douglass. Although Douglass was born into bondage, and never knew his birthdate, he chose to celebrate every year on February 14. We will commemorate his birthday by creating Black history together. This year we will feature a transcribe-a-thon on the Freedmen's Bureau Papers. We are delighted to co-present Douglass Day with the Smithsonian Transcription Center and the National Museum of African American History and Culture. The event will be streamed online in video. CCP members and NMAAHC/SI staff will be available to talk with you on Facebook and Twitter. We'll get to work in Delaware, Princeton, Washington D.C., and simultaneous events around the country and abroad. Let's preserve the long history of Black activism together!

CarlosTrabant University Center TheatreDr. John Carlos is a renowned former track and field athlete who was inducted in to the USA Track and Field Hall of Fame in 2003. At the height of the civil rights struggle in the USA, Dr. Carlos made world history during the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City, Mexico, when he took to the international stage during the medal ceremony and made a speechless statement heard around the world. This image of John Carlos and Tommie Smith with black-gloved fists with bowed heads was seen around the world.
