About the Frederick Douglass Unity House

Founded in 1995 in honor of abolitionist and author Frederick Douglass, the Unity House promotes its mission to institutionalize an environment that nourishes the academic, cultural, informational, and social/communal needs of UMass Dartmouth students, faculty, and staff of color. Next year marks Douglass’ 200th birthday. Be sure to check the UMassD calendar for the event date of this upcoming historical celebration.

About the Black History 4 Seasons Council

The Black History 4 Seasons Council collaborates with various UMassD colleges and departments and community partners, including the New Bedford Historical Society, to offer events focused on engaging students and the broader community in deeper conversations and ongoing dialogue about the African American experience.
