Frederick Douglass (1818-1895) is best known for the telling of his own emancipation. But there is much more to Douglass's story than his time spent enslaved and his famous autobiography.

Statesman, suffragist, writer, and newspaperman, this book focuses on Douglass the man rather than the historical icon.
