Frederick Douglass (September 2018): Picturing Douglass

By Duncan R. Jamieson

Picturing Douglass

Frederick S. Voss, in Majestic in His Wrath, uses paintings, prints, photographs, cartoons, and documents to trace the life of the man who advised young people to “agitate, agitate, agitate.” John Stauffer, Zoe Todd, and Celeste-Marie Bernier have collected 160 photographs, many previously unpublished, to demonstrate the visual power of Frederick Douglass in Picturing Frederick Douglass: An Illustrated Biography of the Nineteenth Century’s Most Photographed American.
