Rochester Media Center (aka Rochester Community TV) seeks funding to support the creation of a  bronze monument to Frederick Douglass and the hard fought accomplishments during the 25 years he lived in Rochester--years he often said were the most meaningful and productive of his life. The bronze monument will be placed in the airport, a very accessible and public place, where the statue will be widely seen by both residents and visitors. The recent renaming of the Rochester Airport--to the Frederick Douglass Greater Rochester International Airport--demonstrates the communities commitment to preserving and celebrating Douglass' legacy. Rochester Community TV Inc. will have ownership and authority over the statue. The installation of the Douglass monument in an accessible place and with accompanying contextual information will educate the Rochester community and visitors about the important role Douglass played on the national stage in the 19th century.
