Frederick Douglass        (1818–95)

 

Pictured here in 1848,

Douglass was born a slave

and did not know his date of birth,

so chose it for himself.

 

And he chose his future, too,

which was first to learn to read and write,

and then to run away.

 

He became a bestselling author, abolitionist,

women’s rights campaigner, newspaper editor and orator

who was the first black man to be received

by a US president (Lincoln).

 

Believing that the objectivity of photographs

was an important counter to the subjectivity of painted portraits,

he also deliberately became

the most photographed American of his time.

Frederick Douglass    1818-1895

 

Frederick Douglass

was an abolitionist.

 

Born to

a slave mother

and an unknown

white father,

he spent

his childhood

in slavery

but secretly

learned to read.

 

As a teenager,

he was hired out

to a brutal overseer

before escaping

to the North.

 

Douglass

became

a powerful orator

and a leading voice

in the struggle

against slavery.

 

In 1845,

his autobiography

("Narrative of the Life

of Frederick Douglass,

an American Slave:

Written by Himself")

was published

to great acclaim.
