Born into slavery in 1818, self-emancipated author and activist,
Frederick Douglass, is the most famous freedom-fighter in US history.
Arriving in Edinburgh in 1846, he became “Scotland’s antislavery agent.”
This world exclusive exhibits the original letters, speeches and
photographs of Frederick Douglass and his sons, Lewis Henry, Frederick
Jr and Charles Remond. All of life is here – romance, tragedy, hope,
despair, love, war, protest and friendship – as the Douglass family
worked together for a new dawn of freedom.
