African American History & Culture Artifact

The National Museum of African-American History & Culture has amazing collections from a variety of eras of African-American life and culture. For this project, we will explore the 1850s collection (but please explore some other decades when you can!). 

You can see the collection by clicking “Date/Era” then “1850s” here:

Choose an artifact from the collection that has a connection to The Narrative of Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave. Then, write a paragraph that explains the artifact you choose, how it connects to the book. Be sure to cite 3 details from the book in explaining your artifact. 

If you want to share your work, you can upload a document, picture, or PDF file below!
