Frederick Douglass, Former Slave and U.S. History Maker

Today, Feb. 20, is the anniversary of the 1895 death of a great American: Frederick Douglass.

The self-educated orphan slave who became an acclaimed orator, the poor child who overcame racism and oppression to be honored by more than president and many other important figures during his life. Frederick was truly an American success story, an admirable freedom fighter.

Douglass, having escaped slavery himself, spent his life working for slavery’s abolition and then civil rights. Not long before his death, Abraham Lincoln greetedDouglass warmly with the comment, “Here comes my friend Douglass…There is no man’s opinion that I value more than yours.”
