Storyboard Text

  • I'll try again!
  • Frederick "Bailey" was upset working as a slave and came up with a new plan to escape after his first attempt had failed.
  • So he disguised himself as a sailor and borrowed fake papers of citizenship from another person, and boarded a train. He wasn't sure if it would work.
  • But it worked fortunately, and now Frederick was on his way to the North.
  • Now, Frederick had made it to the North, and he was ready to start a new, free life.
  • But he still had to hide from slave catchers until he finally saved enough money to buy his liberty.
  • Frederick later changed his last name from Bailey to "Douglass", and published an autobiography in 1845 of his life. It included the beginning of his life as a "free man", and how he became the famous abolitionist we know of now.
