On this day February 14, 1818 (possibly 1817)
The greatest abolitionist of his time and orator Frederick Douglass was born. The exact date of his birth is unknown, however Frederick Douglass chose to celebrate his birthday on February 14.
In his first autobiography, Douglass shared, “I have no accurate knowledge of my age, never having seen any authentic record containing it.”
Happy Birthday to Frederick Douglass, Social Reformer, Abolitionist, Orator, Writer, and Statesman.
