Frederick Douglass' meeting with Abraham Lincoln and other events from the abolitionist's life will be recalled by a Shakesperean-trained, award-winning actor Tuesday at Feldheym Library.

Actor Robert J. Harper will present a one-man show beginning at 6 p.m. as Frederick Douglass, who was an outspoken abolitionist, lecturer, U.S. minister to Haiti and author of two biographies.

The presentation is the fourth program in a series centered around the "Lincoln: the Constitution and the Civil War" exhibit, which includes panels displaying photographic reproductions of documents such as Lincoln's first inaugural speech, the Emancipation Proclamation and the 13th Amendment.

Other programs, which were made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, can be seen at the library's website, www.sbpl.org or by calling Linda Adams Yeh at 909-381-8238.

The exhibit and all programs are located at the Bing Wong Auditorium at Feldheym Library, 555 West 6th St.
