Passionate, Powerful Words of Frederick Douglass

Visitors to the American Writers Museum’s website will learn about the life and work of Frederick Douglass in the museum’s newest virtual exhibit, Frederick Douglass: Agitator. They will see how Douglass’s words remain far too relevant today and why now is as important as ever to, as Douglass said, “Agitate! Agitate! Agitate!” Author and orator Frederick Douglass was a “self-made man” (the title of one of his most popular speeches). To Douglass, a self-made man was an activist who sought to eradicate the sins of society. He escaped from slavery to become one of the most eloquent voices of abolitionism. The official end of slavery in 1865 marked the second phase of Douglass’s career. His words—passionate, brilliant, and powerful—denounced violent racism in the South while demanding true equality for all Americans. Visitors to the museum’s website can see the content from the exhibit, learn about Douglass’s use of portraiture, download a curriculum, and more.
