Actor/poet G. Oliver King brings to life the words of renown abolitionist Frederick Douglass

In celebration of the 200th birthday of the renown abolitionist Frederick Douglass, actor and poet G. Oliver King brings to life the words of the escaped slave from one of the five autobiographies Douglass wrote: Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave. King entitles his personal presentation: “Christianity vs. Slavery- as seen by Frederick Douglass.”

At age 20, Douglass fled Baltimore to freedom, and became a revered author, diplomat and journalist dedicated to freeing slaves, fighting for equal rights for people of color and women, and for the acceptance of immigrants. His works continue to serve as an inspiration for the civil rights movement.
