Frederick Douglass Tea Towel

Frederick Douglass (1818-1895) was a fierce campaigner in the US for equality of all kinds long before it was fashionable. In fact, in 1895 he was the first African American to be nominated for vice president. After his dramatic escape from slavery in the south in 1838, he became a national leader of the abolitionist movement in Massachusetts and New York and was also an active supporter of women’s suffrage and the rights of native Americans. He was well known for his oratory and wrote a number of autobiographies at various points in his life.

Let your kitchen resound to the oratory of the great man with this unique tea towel.
