Frederick Douglass's Women

I am requesting funding for research for a portion of a book project, Frederick Douglass’s Women, which is under contract with Oxford University Press for publication in 2013. Frederick Douglass’s Women adopts a new biographical approach to the life of black abolitionist Frederick Douglass by focusing upon his relationships with the women who influenced him over the course of his life. The portion of the book to be covered by this grant will focus upon Douglass's life in Rochester, New York, in an effort to reconstruct the lives of his wife and daughter, their relationship to Rochester's black community, and the intersection of Douglass's activism and private life through his relationships with the female abolitionists and women's rights activists who lived there.
