Script Details

What does it mean to stand up for what you believe in? Have you ever been afraid to speak up when you knew something wasn’t right?

As our nation prepared for Civil War in the 1800s, a young enslaved man broke free and became a passionate public speaker against slavery. Many were shocked to hear a former slave speak with such eloquence as Frederick Douglass, Abolitionist and American Icon.


Frederic Douglass came of age as the Abolition Movement reached it’s peak. Abolitionists opposed slavery, and like many of them Douglass chose not to be an observer of history, but an active participant in it. Before, during and after the Civil War, Frederick Douglass risked physical attack and even death speaking out against slavery and calling for racial equality. Many times, following his speeches, angry mobs would be waiting to taunt and threaten him, but Douglass could not be stopped. He said,

“I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and incur my own abhorrence.”
