The African-American Cultural Center, Inc. (AACC) hosted an Evening With Frederick Douglass at the Zeiders American Dream Theater on Friday, March 29. The evening included a reception and the impersonating skills of national renowned author and poet Nathan Richardson in character as the historic Frederick Douglass.
