"I will unite with any one to do right, and with no one to do wrong!"

Walk the halls of Cedar Hill, home of the famed abolitionist Frederick Douglass.

Born into slavery, Douglass escaped to spend his life fighting for justice and equality for all people. His tireless struggle, brilliant words, and inclusive vision of humanity continue to inspire and sustain people today.
