Description - Frederick Douglass In Brooklyn by Theodore Hamm

This volume compiles original source material that illustrates the relationship between the abolitionist, Frederick Douglass, and Brooklyn. The volume provides a healthy sampling of clippings from newspapers, including the New York Tribune, Brooklyn Daily Eagle, and the Brooklyn Daily Times, which published Walt Whitman's account of Douglass's 1859 speech in Williamsburg. An introductory essay examines the intricate ties between Douglass and Brooklyn abolitionists, while brief chapter introductions and annotations fill in the historical blanks.
