All Pratt Library Events Cancelled

Due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, all Pratt Library locations are closed out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our customers. Currently programs and events through April 11 have been cancelled. We will continue to update this page with more information as the situation evolves.

While our physical locations are closed, you may still use your Pratt Library Card to access Pratt Digital Library resources, including research materials, downloads, and streaming media for all ages.

Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, and Francis Harper: 19th Century Freedom Fighters

Among the list of prominent African American abolitionists, social reformers, and civil rights advocates are several figures with deep Maryland roots. Join us as we discuss the lives and accomplishments of Frederick Douglass—an accomplished writer and diplomat in addition to his notable work as an abolitionist; Harriet Tubman—who not only led scores of slaves to freedom using the Underground Railroad but served as a spy and a nurse during the Civil War; and Francis Harper—a free black suffragist, poet, and committed abolitionist. Discover the lesser known stories behind these inspirational freedom fighters and gain an appreciation for the legacy of resistance and progressive reform they left behind.
