Frederick Douglass Papers

Completion of the third volume of Frederick Douglass's autobiographical writings. (12 months)

The Frederick Douglass Papers project collects, selects, annotates, and publishes the documents of nineteenth-century reformer and abolitionist Frederick Douglass. Currently, the project is focusing on the annotation and publication of Life and Times of Frederick Douglass, his third and most comprehensive autobiography. This volume is the third in the project's second series, Autobiographical Writings, and covers Douglass's life from his childhood in slavery, his escape, his work in the abolitionist movement, the Civil War, and Reconstruction, and finally through his career as U.S. minister to Haiti.
