Clint Smith teaches you about one of the most famous writers, orators, and advocates of the 19th century, FrederickDouglass. Douglass was born in slavery, escaped to the North, and became one of the most influential people of his time. Douglass wrote about the experience of slavery in a way that captured the attention of people throughout the world, and his work and influence helped directly in the struggle to abolish slavery and achieve emancipation.
