SPECIAL EVENT | "Two Kinds of Fear" 

As part of the Rochester's Rich History series at Central Library, Bill Pruitt intertwines the stories of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass and the legacies of the two human rights activists in "Two Kinds of Fear." Based on published archives, Pruitt takes listeners from Anthony and Douglass' youth through their times in Rochester when their paths began to meet. "All I did was select from the record, but it's a real story about what they felt they must do and what they had to deal with," Pruitt says. "They lived through the same things we are living through today."

Pruitt will perform "Two Kinds of Fear" on Saturday, March 18, at Central Library of Rochester, 115 South Avenue. 1 p.m. Free admission. For more information, call 428-7300 or visit
