Frederick Douglass in Washington, DC: The Lion of Anacostia

The remarkable journey of Frederick Douglass from fugitive slave to famed orator and author is well recorded. Yet little has been written about Douglass’s final years in Washington, D.C.

Journalist John Muller explores how Douglass spent the last 18 years of his life professionally and personally in his home, Cedar Hill, in Anacostia.
