Frederick Douglass

"Truth Is of No Color"

Series: Americans—The Spirit of a Nation

By Michael A. Schuman

In September 1838, Frederick Douglass jumped aboard a train leaving Baltimore. He faced a long and dangerous journey as a runaway slave, but Douglass believed freedom was worth the risk. When he reached New York City, Douglass basked in his newfound freedom. He worked hard and risked his life to end slavery in the United States, and he became one of the most famous abolitionists, writers, and orators in American history.
