Times in the Life of Frederick Douglass

By AKWAABA:The Heritage Associates

The initial piece shows Frederick Douglass in his familiar role as agitator and abolitionist prior to the Raid on Harper's Ferry. He interacts with Harriet Tubman as she visits him at his home and introduces him to Shields Green who subsequently participates in the ill fated Raid.

The second piece is designed to reveal the personal side of Frederick Douglass, from the perspective of those who knew him well, his wife Anna, daughter Rosetta, and his grandmother Betsy. We'll also present the perspectives of Sojourner Truth and Harriet Tubman, who offer their insights. It focuses on turning points in his life and the people and events that shaped him. The setting is 1872, when a fire at his house causes the family to reminisce and face the fact that their stay in Rochester is over. The impetus for this piece is the fact that while Frederick Douglass is and was one of the most famous men in this country, we know most about him from his public words that rarely include his family and personal influences.
