• Periodic articles throughout the year on the challenges facing the community and efforts to fulfill Douglass’s vision.
• A map of Rochester locations related to Douglass
• Reading Douglass: references to books and articles about Douglass and his causes
• Links to Douglass’s speeches
• Links to audio recordings of Douglass’s speeches
