Résumé
Commemorating the bicentennial of Frederick Douglass's birthday and featuring images discovered since its original publication in 2015, this "tour de force" (Library Journal, starred review) reintroduced Frederick Douglass to a twenty-first-century audience. From these pages-which include over 160 photographs of Douglass, as well as his previously unpublished writings and speeches on visual aesthetics-we learn that neither Custer nor Twain, nor even Abraham Lincoln, was the most photographed American of the nineteenth century. Indeed, it was Frederick Douglass, the ex-slave-turned-abolitionist, eloquent orator, and seminal writer, who is canonized here as a leading pioneer in photography and a prescient theorist who believed in the explosive social power of what was then just an emerging art form. Featuring: - Contributions from Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and Kenneth B. Morris, Jr. (a direct Douglass descendent) - 160 separate photographs of Douglass-many of which have never been publicly seen and were long lost to history - A collection of contemporaneous artwork that shows how powerful Douglass's photographic legacy remains today, over a century after his death - All Douglass's previously unpublished writings and speeches on visual aesthetics
