Frederick Douglass (1817-1895)

Frederick Douglass was an African-American who escaped from slavery and wrote his story, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, which was daringly published in 1845, since he was a runaway slave and slavery was still legal. Douglass was an excellent orator whose literary brilliance thrust him into the forefront of the Abolition movement. He established the North Star, a newspaper he issued for seventeen years. Douglass was also United States minister to Haiti. This portrait is a reproduction of a pen and ink drawing by S. J. Eddy.
