Avalon Event Featured on NBC

The Avalon Theatre was the venue for a celebration of Frederick Douglass' birthday.  The event was covered by NBC in a piece titled Black historical interpreters act to keep history alive as some work to erase it.

"About 80 miles to the east of Washington is the small town of Easton, a picturesque seaside community founded in 1790 on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Inside the Avalon Theatre, a historic venue that’s been beautifully restored to its art deco grandeur, live jazz fills the air as folks settle into their seats. 

The occasion is the birthday celebration for Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey, better known as Frederick Douglass."
