Douglass Community CenterThree years after he escaped enslavement, Douglass gave a brief speech at an anti-slavery meeting in New Bedford, Massachusetts. This lecture would be the beginning of a repertoire of speeches that built Frederick Douglass's reputation as one of the most eloquent and stirring orators in history. This activist grove of American elm represents the state of Massachusetts where Frederick Douglass honed his skills as an abolitionist and orator.
