Guy Peartree's portrayal of Frederick Douglass, a relentless anti-slavery orator, twice on Wednesday, October 5 encompassed Douglass? life from birth into slavery, his experiences, relationships, his education, escape from slavery and ascendancy as America's foremost black abolitionist. The History and Political Science Department hosted both performances and a workshop for students as part of a multi-year commemoration of the 150th Anniversary of the U.S. Civil War. At the morning performance, the Sullivan Auditorium was swarming with students from local high schools, including Burncoat High, University Park, North High, Claremont Academy, Tantasqua High and Millbury High. WSU students were also in attendance.
