    Let’s Have Tea Statue of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass

    At the park across the street from Susan B. Anthony House stands the statue of two of Rochester’s most acclaimed citizens – the suffragist leader Susan B. Anthony and the abolitionist leader, Frederick Douglass.

    The bronze statue, created by Pepsy Kettavong, and erected in 2001, depicts the two civil rights activists in a middle of a conversation, between them there is a table set with a teapot, two cups, and a couple of books.

    Anthony and Douglass shared more than a similar address; they were close friends who shared the same views about equality, abolitionism, and women’s rights, and both of them dedicated their lives to promote these ideas.

    The statue encourages visitors to imagine what a conversation between those revolutionary icons would be like.
