Celebrate 200 Years of the Life and Legacy of Frederick Douglass
February 2018 made 200 years since the birth of Frederick Douglass. Born enslaved, he sought freedom and against all odds, rose to a life of honor by becoming a statesman, journalist, activist, hero and so much more.
Join the National Park Service on a yearlong commemoration as we honor Douglass's life, his connection to the community and his commitment to social justice during the bicentennial year of his birth.
