Frederick Douglass’s America

The course will follow Frederick Douglass’s life from enslavement to political power-broker in the middle of the 19th century. Each week we will focus on an episode of Douglass’s life as a way to explore the larger cultural processes that fundamentally altered the United States. Topics include slavery, the Underground Railroad, the politics of emancipation during the Civil War, the reconstruction amendments and the coming of Jim Crow. At the heart of the course will be a focus on racism and its corruption of American Ideals.

Adam Pratt, Ph.D., Associate Professor of American History, The University of Scranton
