Advocate
    (February 14, 1818-February 20, 1895)
    Birth name was Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey
    Settled in Rochester, New York
    Station master on the Underground Railroad
    First African-American to run for vice president
    He had crazy hair.
    He couldn't decide on a last name, using 'Johnson' for a time before settling on 'Douglass.'
    When he was a child, his mistress taught him to read (a privilege not given to most slaves).
    He outraged some supporters by marrying a white woman when his first wife died.
    When he remarried, his longtime lover (also white) killed herself.
    As a slave, he fought back when he was beaten, and as a result was never whipped again.
    He escaped his master by impersonating a seaman and sailing away on a ship.
    He was a brilliant speaker and writer.
    He wrote an autobiography while still in his twenties.
    He sheltered many runaway slaves trying to escape to freedom.
    His anti-slavery lectures and publications made him incredibly famous.
    He outlived his daughter.
    His advice was sought by several presidents, including Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant.
