A spy was able to share a photo of Governor Larry Hogan visiting the mural to commemorate Frederick Douglass in Easton.
The mural, painted by world-renowned muralist Michael Rosato of Cambridge, Maryland, features a timeline of the life of Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey Douglass and his wife, Anna Murray Douglass. Painted on panels, the work chronicles the factors that shaped Douglass as a man and advocate for human rights, highlighting his emphasis on education, and his work in a shipyard and The North Star newspaper. It also focuses on the family’s proud history of military service and illustrates Douglass’ lasting contributions to the progression of African Americans from slavery to the White House.
It can be viewed on the Easton Rails Trail at 505 South Street in Easton.
