Many thanks to Rabbi Peter Hyman and our intrepid Chesapeake Forum Board Member for promoting the upcoming David Blight program on Frederick Douglass... and Lifelong Learning. Rabbi's Roundtable is a regular production brought to the mid-shore by MCTV (Mid-Shore Public Television)
John Miller talks with the Talbot Spy about the upcoming Visiting Professor Lecture, "Frederick Douglass in His Time and Ours" with Professor David Blight from Yale.

Your contribution allows us to continue offering courses, discussions, presentations, field trips, and events that encompass diverse topics.
