Event: Frederick Douglass: My Bondage & My Freedom

Frederick Douglass escapes Southern slavery, forges an alliance with Northern abolitionists, writes a narrative of his life & times, and after a two-year anti-slavery tour of the British Isles returns to the United States. But when his abolitionist colleagues attempt to curtail his growing political independence, Douglass is forced to confront racial prejudice in an entirely unexpected locale – among his abolitionist friends themselves. Through force of conviction, eloquence of language and the liberating power of thought, this anti-slavery leader and growing “woman’s rights man”, emerges triumphant, not only in his quest for personal and professional dignity, but in his general assault against the slavery system itself.
