Frederick Douglass

2 Frederick Douglass's Bicentennial Commemoration

Born on a farm on the banks of the Tuckahoe Creek, Frederick Douglass’s life would forever be interwoven with his home state of Maryland. That same beautiful place that he loved so deeply, was the place where he was stripped of liberty, ripped from his family, and bound by the literal chains of slavery.
