"Frederick Douglass...No Turning Back"  
  starring Kyle Taylor

    







   Frederick Douglass
     one of our greatest American heroes, 
     was an electrifying orator, abolitionist, 
     Christian leader, and newspaper editor!  

     He thrilled audiences across America and 
     England in his quest to abolish slavery and 
     create true freedom and equality in America.  

     The fact Douglass was a slave until he escaped 
     at age 20 in 1838, is secondary to his astounding 
     accomplishments as a stunning and eloquent agent 
     of social reform...he felt God called him to create 
     freedom for all people in America, so he spent his 
     life challenging our society.
