Clip: Episode 1 | 2m 20s | Video has closed captioning.
One of the most photographed men of the 19th century, Douglass brilliantly uses the power of his image to challenge stereotypes of African Americans—a crucial step toward the abolition of slavery. "Becoming Frederick Douglass" is produced and directed by Stanley Nelson and Nicole London and features Wendell Pierce as the voice of Douglass.
