Frederick Douglass was an African-American social reformer, abolitionist, orator, writer, and statesman. He was born into slavery but after escaping from it, he became a leader of the abolitionist movement, notable for his dazzling oratory and incisive antislavery writings.
He became one of the most famous intellectuals of his time, advising presidents and lecturing to thousands on a range of causes, including women’s rights and Irish home rule. He stood as a living counter-example to slaveholders' arguments that slaves lacked the intellectual capacity to function as independent American citizens.
Power point presentation #1 is entitled, Key Figures - Frederick Douglas and contains 21 slides and covers the following:

Sojourner Truth was a prominent abolitionist and women’s rights activist. As a slave, living in NY, she had at least 3 of her children sold away from her. After escaping slavery, Truth embraced evangelical religion and became involved in moral reform and abolitionist work.
She collected supplies for black regiments during the Civil War and immersed herself in advocating for freed people during the Reconstruction period. Truth was a powerful and impassioned speaker whose legacy of feminism and racial equality still resonates today.
She is perhaps best known for her stirring “Ain’t I a Woman?” speech, delivered at a women’s convention in Ohio in 1851.
Power point presentation #2 is entitled, Key Figures - Sojourner Truth and contains 14 slides and covers the following:
Early Slave Life
