On February 14, we commemorate the birthday of Frederick Douglass who was born in Maryland in 1817. He died in 1895. He was a slave who later obtained his freedom. He was a noted author and orator on the issue of abolition. He founded a newspaper called "THE NORTH STAR."


The Frederick Douglass home, located in Anacostia (SouthEast Washington) is a national landmark and tourist attraction.
