The Life and Times of Anna Murray Douglass
Anna Murray Douglass, wife of the legendary abolitionist Frederick Douglass, was the backbone of their family and the catalyst for his freedom. Much of what we know about her is through Frederick’s biographies and passing references in other works. Daina Ramey Berry, PhD, covers the life and times of Anna, highlighting her role as a nineteenth-century abolitionist in her own right.
