        Ex-slave Frederick Douglass Joins the Abolitionists | The Abolitionists

        In this video adapted from AMERICAN EXPERIENCE: “The Abolitionists,” featuring historical reenactments, learn about the contributions of Frederick Douglass to the abolitionist movement. A former slave who escaped to freedom in 1838, Douglass’s eloquence made him one of the most prominent spokespersons for the movement to end slavery. His efforts to free George Latimer, an escaped slave who had been imprisoned in Massachusetts, led to the first of several personal liberty laws passed by legislatures in northern states. This resource is part of the American Experience collection.
