Summary:
(1818-1895) Abolitionist editor Frederick Douglass was born into slavery as Frederick Bailey in 1818. Secretly taught to read and write as a young boy, he started an illegal school for slaves as a young man. Douglass escaped slavery by traveling north to Massachusetts where he changed his name to avoid slave hunters. There, he became a popular speaker and published his autobiography in addition to an abolitionist newspaper. Deeply involved in the operation of the Underground Railroad, Douglass believed that active political work would make a difference, and he fought for the rights of African Americans and women, later serving in the Foreign Service. Part of the Black Americans of Achievement Video Collection that celebrates the most influential African Americans in history.

Only available in the US.
