Parents looking for history and activity-based learning options featuring prominent and influential African Americans will find this Kindle-format book about abolitionist and statesman Frederick Douglass inspiring for their young travelers. His final home is in SE Washington DC, maintained by the U.S Park Service and his papers are at the Library of Congress.
Few Americans have had as much impact on this nation as Frederick Douglass. Born on a plantation, he later escaped slavery and helped others to freedom via the Underground Railroad. In time he became a bestselling author, an outspoken newspaper editor, a brilliant orator, and a tireless abolitionist. He was famous on both sides of the Atlantic in the years leading up to the Civil War, and when war broke out, Abraham Lincoln invited him to the White House for counsel and advice.
