After escaping slavery at the age of 20, Douglass went on to become one of America’s most celebrated abolitionists – tirelessly campaigning against slavery.

Beyond his abolitionist work, Douglass was also a politician, writer, feminist, educator, entrepreneur and diplomat.

The Frederick Douglass 200 is a project to honor the impact of 200 living individuals who best embody the work and spirit of Douglass across those areas where he had such an impact – abolitionist, politician, writer, feminist, educator, entrepreneur and diplomat.

Each week, between now and November, we will publish a list of 10 new people who have joined the FD200.

– Kenneth Morris, great-great-great grandson of Frederick Douglass
