The Frederick Douglass Council is an affinity and networking group that highlights the important role that African Americans have played in American and New York history. Our goal is to deepen discussion and engagement on a variety of topics through public programs, exhibition viewings, and exclusive events throughout the year.

Frederick Douglass Council Young Leaders will meet to discuss issues of importance to the African American community, with a focus on issues related to education, leadership, culture, history and professional achievement. For more information and to join as a member or a corporate sponsor:
