BECOMING FREDERICK DOUGLAS: Discover how a man born into slavery in Maryland became one of the most influential voices for democracy in American history. Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Stanley Nelson explores the role abolitionist, orator, social reformer, and statesman Frederick Douglass played in securing the right to freedom and equality for African Americans.
