Tickets for Frederick Douglass show in Grand Rapids
This is the first time this performance has been held in Minnesota. The timing of everything, with Daunte Wright’s death and the trial of George Floyd’s death, is accurate as it explores the roots of systemic racism.
Johnson wants people to get away from the show with the message that we need to work together to solve these problems and embody the spirit of Douglass. “There is progress and compromise, and we have to work within the system. That seems really fatalistic right now because the system seems to be against what is going on. But he never gave up. He never resigned. Man have to carry on. You have to carry on whatever is possible. “
