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