The Douglass A/V Library
Welcome to the Frederick Douglass A/V library. Here we collect movies, videos, and podcasts about Frederick Douglass. From elementary school podcasts to college lectures, lots of people are talking about Douglass. Keep in mind, most of these were not produced by the NPS so we cannot verify their content or ideas.
(If you want non-A/V Douglass resources on the web take a look at our list here).

Did You Know?
Family was a big part of Frederick Douglass' life at Cedar Hill. By the 1890s his four surviving children (a fifth had died as a baby) all lived in Washington, D.C. Between them they eventually gave Douglass twenty one grand kids, filling the halls of Cedar Hill with noise and activity. Douglass can be seen here with his grandson Joseph, who went on to become a famous violinist.
