Encounters with Rochester's African American Ancestors

Help us spread the word to teachers, students and the general public!

We are grateful that we will once again be able to offer live performances of this special event in 2023. Meet Captain Sunfish, Anna Murray Douglass, Frederick Douglass and others in this dramatic and entertaining performance.

School performances will be held Thursday morning February 9th and Friday Morning February 10th. Pre- and post-visit materials are provided to classrooms.  A free public performance will also be offered – please subscribe to our Landmark Alerts email for the latest on the time and place for that event.

Funding is available to assist with registration and transportation for interested school groups.  Contact Cindy Boyer at to receive more information.
