Born the son of a white father he never knew and a slave mother, Frederick Douglass learned to read and write while growing up on a plantation in Maryland. After escaping slavery in 1838, he turned his unique talents as a writer and orator toward the fight for emancipation. Bio4Kids explores Douglass’ many activities, including editing an abolitionist newspaper, recruiting Negro regiments during the war, or conferring with President Abraham Lincoln.
