Frederick Douglass

Yesterday, February 20, marked the anniversary of the death of abolitionist and equal rights leader Frederick Douglass. Douglass was born into slavery in Tuckahoe, Maryland. In 1838, Douglass escaped from slavery and soon became one of the leading figures of the Abolitionist movement. He wrote several autobiographies detailing his life as a slave, including his 1845 autobiography, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave, which became influential in its support for abolition.
