When Douglass was born in 1818, he was given to his grandparents as his mother was a slave and she had to work. Isaac and Betsey Bailey took good care of Douglass when he was young.
Finally, I am done with my Anti-Slavery Newspaper.
When Douglass became older, he became a slave just like his mother, Harriet Bailey. He was treated cruelly like all other slaves. One day he ran away and escaped the slave camps between 1826-1838
I too believe woman should be given the same freedom as men.
It is great that you are supporting both Anti-Slavery and Women's rights
Douglass started to take part in the Anti-Slavery Society. He spoke at an Anti-Slavery Meeting in Massachusetts and became a lecturer for the Anti-Slavery Society between 1841-1847
In 1847, he started to publish a weekly newspaper called the, "North Star." This newspaper would focus on the topic of Anti-Slavery. Many people would read his newspaper weekly and get educated about slavery and why it should end.
Douglass starts to work with more people in his fight to end slavery and he starts to attend more meetings for different causes, such as women's rights. He also meets up with many other popular reformers such as Harriet Beecher Stowe and John Brown. He started to do this in 1848
Frederick Douglass dies at the age of 77 on February 20, 1895 after attending a Women's rights meeting at Cedar Hill. His hard work to end slavery paid off in 1865 when slavery finally ended.
