Rochester Reformers

From the days of Frederick Douglass and Susan B. Anthony through more recent times, students will read widely on the memory and meaning of Rochester reformers, consider the social and political impact of reform struggles locally and nationally, and contribute to an online archive about Rochester history.
Highlight! We will learn about Frederick Douglas’s lesser known battles for civil rights, fighting for children from an African American neighborhood to attend a local school in his Rochester neighborhood. And we will find contemporary change agents who are working locally.
