Women in the World of Frederick Douglass

Rising Towards Unity

June 2, 2019

2:00 pm, Grafton Community Barn

Most people know about Frederick Douglass, the former slave, abolitionist, and freedom-fighter whose autobiography remains a monument in nineteenth-century American literature. But, what about the women behind the man who made his life and legacy possible?

Leigh Fought, author of the award-winning Women in the World of Frederick Douglass and professor of history a Le Moyne College, will tell the story of the important women who created and supported Frederick Douglass, including his mother and grandmother, slave-mistresses, two wives, and the many activist women who kept the movement for human right alive.
