Mission Statement

The Frederick Douglass Honor Society is dedicated to developing programs that continue the Douglass legacy of human rights, education, personal growth, and involvement of citizens.  


Our Goal:

To honor Frederick Douglass here in his birthplace, Talbot County, Maryland, where his experiences in his youth- both positive and negative- helped form his character, intellect and determination. It became Frederick Douglass’ life goal to bring black people, and America, away from the ancient institution of slavery.

It is our hope that Frederick Douglass will be seen as a true leader by all Americans.  His brilliant oratory and his influence both here and abroad helped black people and our country through one of the most difficult and painful struggles in our history. He is known, honored and respected around the world; we believe he should be considered among the foremost of our many American heroes. A statue of him in his birthplace is a beginning…
