Frederick Douglass, the Canton Company, and Canton History

November 18, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm

What started out as a volunteer effort to clean up trash on Canton’s waterfront led Dr. Raymond Bahr on a path of research that has brought to light where Frederick Douglass escaped from his enslavement, how the Canton Company shaped Baltimore, and the national impact that Canton’s industries had on the growth of America. Join Dr. Bahr as he shares his research and findings on this under-told part of our history
