André De Shields Is Frederick Douglass

by Sandi Durell . . .

André De Shields’ performance live at Flushing Town Hall (YouTube) on February 26, doesn’t allow for enough adjectives to describe his brilliance capturing and embodying the spirit and genius of Frederick Douglass as part of this month’s Black History Trilogy.

A benefit for Flushing Town Hall, the three evenings presented included performances by Alton Fitzgerald White, Lillias White and Mr. De Shields.  Produced by Clyde C. Bullard, “Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory” attracted an audience of almost 1300 viewers with great accolades from so many during the performance. To donate or see the YouTube Live events, click HERE
