Roger Guenveur's Smith one-man show, FREDERICK DOUGLASS NOW


I absolutely love Roger Guenveur Smith. When he did A Huey P. Newton Story, I was floored. Now we get to see him again, this time performing for a good cause: Revolution Books' $100,000 Fund Drive

I hope you will check it out:

Praise:
"Roger Guenveur Smith gets it all and gets it brilliantly." -The New York Times

"If anyone could bring the legendary 19th-century runaway-slave-turned-abolitionist and author Frederick Douglass to searing life, it's Roger Guenveur Smith."- Time Out New York

"A star turn, a rapid-fire riff, darting among epochs that mix the sounds of poetry slam, hip-hop and the old-style preacher. Spoken, sung and emoted with entertaining conviction." -The New York Times
