Frederick Douglass at the Tremont: Part 1
Frederick Douglass strides across Boston common toward Tremont Baptist Church.
This week we are introducing a new feature at Pluribus, Legends of Dissent.
We begin with an incident from the life of former slave Frederick Douglass, a giant of the abolitionist cause and champion for free speech.
