Frederick Douglass
Frederick Douglass was born the son of a slave, Harriet Bailey, and a plantation superintendent, Aaron Anthony, in February, 1818, in Tuckahoe, Maryland. Given the name Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey, he was raised by his grandparents after being separated from his mother. However, when Frederick was only six years old, his grandmother took him his master's plantation and left him there. At the age of eight, he was given the position of house boy, where he was taught to read, illegally, by Sophia Auld, the mistress of the house. In 1838, after several attempts and disguised as a sailor, Frederick escaped and fled to New York. The Underground Railroad helped Anna Murray, Frederick's love, escape. The two married and moved to Massachusetts. Frederick adopted the last name "Douglass." He soon became active in the budding abolitionist movement. A speech at the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society in 1841 saw the beginning of Douglass' career as a lecturer. His progressive views included being in favor of Irish Home Rule, women's suffrage, and free public education. In 1845, Douglass wrote his autobiography called

As originally published in
The Atlantic Monthly December 1866
by Frederick Douglass
T HE assembling of the Second Session of the Thirty-ninth Congress may very properly be made the occasion of a few earnest words on the already much-worn topic of reconstruction. Seldom has any legislative body been the subject of a solicitude more intense, or of aspirations more sincere and ardent. There are the best of reasons for this profound interest. Questions of vast moment, left undecided by the last session of Congress, must be manfully grappled with by this. No political skirmishing will avail. The occasion demands statesmanship.

67. Frederick Douglass, "What To The Slave Is The Fourth Of July?" 5 July 1852
The speech was originally published as a pamphlet. It can be located in James M. Gregory s, frederick douglass, the Orator (New York, 1893), 10306.
Frederick Douglass,
"What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?"
5 July "Meeting sponsored by the Rochester Ladies' Anti-Slavery Society, Rochester Hall, Rochester, N.Y." Occasion: Meeting sponsored by the Rochester Ladies' Anti-Slavery Society, Rochester Hall, Rochester, N.Y. To illustrate the full shame of slavery, Douglass delivered a speech that took aim at the pieties of the nation the cherished memories of its revolution, its principles of liberty, and its moral and religious foundation. The Fourth of July, a day celebrating freedom, was used by Douglass to remind his audience of liberty's unfinished business. Mr. President, Friends and Fellow Citizens: He who could address this audience without a quailing sensation, has stronger nerves than I have. I do not remember ever to have appeared as a speaker before any assembly more shrinkingly, nor with greater distrust of my ability, than I do this day. A feeling has crept over me, quite unfavorable to the exercise of my limited powers of speech. The task before me is one which requires much previous thought and study for its proper performance. I know that apologies of this sort are generally considered flat and unmeaning. I trust, however, that mine will not be so considered. Should I seem at ease, my appearance would much misrepresent me. The little experience I have had in addressing public meetings, in country school houses, avails me nothing on the present occasion. The papers and placards say, that I am to deliver a 4th [of] July oration. This certainly sounds large, and out of the common way, for it is true that I have often had the privilege to speak in this beautiful Hall, and to address many who now honor me with their presence. But neither their familiar faces, nor the perfect gage I think I have of Corinthian Hall, seems to free me from embarrassment.

Appeal to Congress for Impartial Suffrage By Frederick Douglass
January, 1867 But suffrage for the negro, while easily sustained upon abstract principles, demands consideration upon what are recognized as the urgent necessities of the case. It is a measure of relief,a shield to break the force of a blow already descending with violence, and render it harmless. The work of destruction has already been set in motion all over the South. Peace to the country has literally meant war to the loyal men of the South, white and black; and negro suffrage is the measure to arrest and put an end to that dreadful strife. Something then, not by way of argument, (for that has been done by Charles Sumner, Thaddeus Stevens, Wendell Phillips, Gerrit Smith, and other able men,) but rather of statement and appeal.

It is with great hesitation that I consent to rise here to speak, after the able speech to which you have just listened. I had far rather remain a listener to others, than to become myself a speaker at this stage of the proceedings of this meeting. I do not hope to be able, in the few remarks I have to make, to say anything new or eloquent, for it will be time indeed to discuss new truths, when old ones shall have been recognized and adopted.
Human rights for black men
For seventeen years, Mr. Chairman, the Abolitionists of the United States have been encountering obloquy, scorn, and opposition of the most furious character, for uttering,—what? Their conviction that a man is a man,—that every man belongs to himself and to no one else. In propagating this idea, this simple proposition, we have met with all sorts of opposition, and with all sorts of arguments drawn from the Bible, from the Constitution, and from philosophy, till at length many have arrived at the sage conclusion that a man is something else than a man, and that he has not the rights of a man. An event has just occurred in the District of Columbia, the Capitol of the country, known to you all, which furnishes the proof of this assertion. Some seventy-seven men, women, and children, took it into their heads, contrary to the Constitution, that they were men, not

Narrative Essay
The foremost African American abolitionist in antebellum America, Frederick Douglass (ca. 1817-1895) was the first African American leader of national stature in United States history. Frederick Douglass was born, as can best be determined, in February 1817 (he took the 14th as his birthday) on the eastern shore of Maryland. His mother, from whom he was separated at an early age, was a slave named Harriet Bailey. She named her son Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey; he never knew or saw his father. (Frederick adopted the name Douglass much later.) Douglass's childhood, though he judged it in his autobiography as being no more cruel than that of scores of others caught in similar conditions, appears to have been extraordinarily deprived of personal warmth. The lack of familial attachments, hard work, and sights of incredible inhumanity fill the text of his early remembrances of the main plantation of Col. Edward Lloyd. In 1825 his masters decided to send him to Baltimore to live with Hugh Auld. Mrs. Auld, Douglass's new mistress and a Northerner unacquainted with the disciplinary techniques Southern slaveholders used to preserve docility in their slaves, treated young Douglass well. She taught him the rudiments of reading and writing until her husband stopped her. With this basic background he began his self-education.

F rederick Douglass lived a remarkable life. Born in 1818 on Maryland's Eastern Shore, his mother was a slave, his father an unknown white man. Eventually he was sent to Baltimore where he worked as a ship's caulker in the thriving seaport. He made his dash to freedom from there in 1838. His ability to eloquently articulate the plight of the slave through his various publications and public speeches brought him international renown. Towards the end of his life, Douglass served his country as Consul General to Haiti and Charge d'Affaires for Santo Domingo. He died in 1895. Freeman's Papers Frederick Douglass Douglass began his life in bondage working the fields on Maryland's Eastern Shore. At age 18, he was sent to Baltimore where he learned to caulk ships. He worked in the local shipyards earning a wage that was not given to him but to his master. His first step to freedom was to borrow the identity papers of a freed slave: Hopping A Northbound Train Armed with these papers, and disguised as a sailor, Douglass nervously clamors aboard a train heading North on a Monday morning:

Early Life

The figure that we now know as Frederick Douglass was born in 1818 as Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey, a slave. The site of his birth, Holme Hill Farm, was located in Tappers Corners, on the western shores of the Tuckahoe River, near Cordova.
Local legend has long stood that young Fred belonged to the Lloyds of Wye House - this is simply untrue. Ownership of Fred, his grandmother and his mother belonged to the Anthony family. Aaron Anthony, the patriarch of this clan, worked as chief overseer of the Lloyd farms and his main place of residence was the small house now known as the Captain's House at the Wye plantation. His secondary residence, Holme Hill Farm, was where Fred resided for the early years of his life. Frederick was raised by his grandmother, Betsy; his mother had been "rented out" to another farm, farther north on the Shore. Betsy was a strong and independent woman, a female figure (among several others) that would influence Frederick's deep life-long respect for women. She was a slave woman, married to a free black man, who was allowed, outside of her regular daily duties, to earn her own living by cultivating vegetables and hand-crafting seine nets for fishing.

Born a slave in Maryland, Frederick Douglas eventually escaped to freedom. His lifelong struggles for liberty and the rights of others have become a stirring episode in the darkest chapter of American history.
A modern painting of Frederick Douglass by Richard Hunt.
On November 13, 2002, at Adrian College, Michigan, Frederick Douglass IV and his wife, B.J., announced that they were embarking on a mission to empower young people. "We're celebrating my great-great-grandfather's escape from slaveryon September 3, 1838by taking what we think is a vital message to America's young people," said Douglass. "We tell them that if Frederick Douglass could come into this world as a totally impoverished slave and transform himself into an orator, author, member of the middle class, and confidant of presidents, then their potentialin an era of free access to public educationis unlimited. But they must begin charting their successful futures today.
"We hope to inspire and empower 165,000 young people to develop their skills in reading, writing, arithmetic, and public speaking. We hope to admonish young people to preserve their brains through abstaining from drugs, drinking, and wallowing in self-pity; advise them to use Wait Power through deferring their involvement in premarital sex and other distracting activities; and encourage young people to begin charting their successful futures today, by planning to attend college or a trade school and/or to become entrepreneurs."

"The Heroic Slave":
Frederick Douglass’ Revolutionary Revision
Robin Mac Donald Frederick Douglas' 1852 novella "The Heroic Slave" was his response to the Rochester Ladies' Anti-Slavery Society's request for a submission to be included in their compilation Autographs for Freedom (McFeely 173). This work, which represents the author's only attempt at fiction, was heavily influenced by the historical events which surrounded the actual rebellion led by Madison Washington on the slave ship Creole . Maggie Sale theorizes that Douglas' purpose was to revise the general reportage of the historical rebellion by highlighting the revolutionary quintessence of the insurrectionists. While the popular perception of the occurrence preoccupied itself with Britain's involvement in the incident and disregarded the rebellion's impetus, Douglass' revision emphasizes the protagonist's heroic sublimity and revolutionary aim. Transposing the revolutionary paradigm which was used by slaveholding interests to highlight Great Britain's role, Douglass fundamentally re-interprets the episode by connecting revolutionary objectives to the rebellion. In this way, Douglass is able to define the slave ship insurrection as righteous and quintessentially American (Sale 27).

Actor Norman Matlock recreating a speech by abolitionist Frederick Douglass. Douglass was born into slavery around 1817, and was educated illegally by a sympathetic owner. He escaped and went to England to escape a bounty on his head and to rouse the international opinion against the institution of slavery. This speech, entitled "An Appeal to the British People" was given on May 12, 1846, in London. After the Civil War, Douglass lived in Washington, D.C., where he received a public appointment and worked as a journalist.
