Happy Birthday 2 Ya “Frederick Douglass” First African American Nominated for Vice President

Submitted by on Wednesday, 14 February 2018No Comment

Frederick Douglass, born a slave on February 14, 1818 (celebrated on this day, exact date unknown) was was a social reformer, abolitionist, orator, writer, and statesman. He was the first African-American citizen to hold a high U.S. government rank.


Douglass published three versions of his autobiography during his lifetime, revising and expanding on his work each time. My Bondage and My Freedom appeared in 1855. In 1881, Douglass published Life and Times of Frederick Douglass, which he revised in 1892.


After settling as a free man with his wife Anna in New Bedford in 1838, Frederick Douglass was eventually asked to tell his story at abolitionist meetings, and he became a regular anti-slavery lecturer. In addition to abolition, Douglass became an outspoken supporter of women’s rights. In 1848, he was the only African American to attend the first women’s rights convention at Seneca Falls, New York. Elizabeth Cady Stanton asked the assembly to pass a resolution stating the goal of women’s suffrage.


Douglass became the first African American nominated for vice president of the United States as Victoria Woodhull’s running mate on the Equal Rights Party ticket in 1872. (via Biography)
