UW-Eau Claire Political Scientist to Discuss
Frederick Douglass and Current Political Season

RELEASED: Oct. 8, 2008

Peter Myers book cover of "Frederic Douglass, Race, and Liberal Traditions in the U.S."

EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Network of Unitarian Universalist Students will sponsor a program with author Peter Myers about his recently published book, "Frederick Douglass: Race and the Rebirth of American Liberalism."

The program, "Frederick Douglass: The Original Audacity of Hope," will begin at 7 p.m. Oct. 22 in Room 100 of Schneider Hall.

Myers, a UW-Eau Claire professor of political science, will discuss how understanding the writings and life of former slave Frederick Douglass can enable one to develop a deeper sense of the context of the issues and events of the 2008 political season.

The free public program is cosponsored by the departments of history, political science, English, and philosophy and religious studies.

For more information, contact Tim Hirsch, UW-Eau Claire emeritus professor of English, at 715-832-0410.
