Frederick Douglass (born Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey, February 1818 – February 20, 1895) was an American social reformer, orator, writer and statesman. After escaping from slavery, he became a leader of the abolitionist movement, gaining note for his dazzling oratory and incisive antislavery writing. He stood as a living counter-example  to slaveholders’ arguments that slaves did not have the intellectual  capacity to function as independent American citizens. Many Northerners also found it hard to believe that such a great orator had been a slave.
