December 11, 2004, Greencastle, Ind. - "At the Washington Ballet's premiere of its new, historically revised production (set in 1882 in a G-town mansion) of The Nutcracker, which familiar Washington face will be playing the role of Frederick Douglass?," asks the Washington Post's "Names and Faces" column. "None other than man-about-town/superlawyer Vernon Jordan, who's happy to make a cameo as the famed abolitionist." Jordan, former adviser to President Bill Clinton and former president of the National Urban League, is a 1957 graduate of DePauw University.
