Summary:
As a young man, he experienced the brutality of slavery firsthand. As an outspoken leader of the abolitionist movement, he became one of the most powerful voices in American history.

Frederick Douglass inadvertently found his calling while giving an impromptu speech at an antislavery meeting in 1841. As a former slave, he quickly became not only a persuasive speaker, but also a poignant symbol of freedom. His insightful and eloquent lectures and his tireless efforts to educate the public about the realities of slavery significantly furthered the abolitionist cause. This inspiring BIOGRAPHY program chronicles Douglass's remarkable life: from his childhood in slavery to his crucial work on behalf of former slaves following the Civil War.

Rare photographs and extensive interviews with leading historians offer a revealing portrait of this extraordinary man.
