Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom

Setup

Born into slavery, Frederick Douglass learned to read against the odds, succeeded in a harrowing escape from bondage, and went on to bear witness to its evils across the country. By the outbreak of the Civil War, he had become perhaps the most famous orator in the nation — charismatic, eloquent, and a unique combination of fierce critic of his country and radical patriot. Journey with the author of the recent Pulitzer Prize-winning biography into Douglass’s world — and learn not only about his tumultuous and divided times, but ours too. Stick around after the event for a book signing with David Blight.
