Fredrick Douglass:
In Remembrance

The sculpture Fredrick Douglass: In Remembrance appears in front of the Douglass Branch Library in Douglass Park, Champaign.

The Douglass sculpture project was coordinated by a committee of community members, Champaign Park District staff, and funded by gifts from the Friends of the Champaign Public Library, area businesses, and donors from the community. Partial funding also came from a Live and Learn Construction Grant from the Illinois State library, a division of the Office of the Secretary of State.
