Birth year and place
Frederick Douglass was born in February, 1818 in Talbot County, MD.
The first time he tried to escape, he failed. The next time he dressed as a sailor and got on a train to freedom.
Frederick wrote several autobiographies including one about his life as a slave.
Douglass' friends and mentors feared that the publicity would draw the attention of his ex-owner, Hugh Auld, who might try to get his "property" back. They encouraged Douglass to tour Ireland, as many former slaves had done.
Douglass and Anna had five children: Rosetta Douglass, Lewis Henry Douglass, Frederick Douglass, Jr., Charles Remond Douglass, and Annie Douglass (died at the age of ten). Charles and Rossetta helped Douglass produce his newspapers.

On February 20, 1895, Douglass attended a meeting of the National Council of Women in Washington, D.C. During that meeting, he was brought to the platform and received a standing ovation. Shortly after he returned home, Frederick Douglass died of a massive heart attack or stroke.
Contribution to the Civil Rights Movement
He wrote many letters, speeches, etc., and spoke out frequently against slavery.
