FREDERICK DOUGLASS (1818-1895)

Frederick Douglass was a slave, ship caulker, free man, ordained minister, abolitionist, women's suffragist, author, orator, editor and friend of President Abraham Lincoln.

The sculpture is based on images of his appearance after he moved to New Bedford, Massachusetts in 1838.

David Englund


“Douglass was with Lincoln the preeminent self-made man in American history and one of the nation's greatest prose writers, He defined self-making as inseparable from social reform.”

John Stauffer
