It is the Age of Sail, and First Lieutenant Mark Douglas of the Royal Navy has set his sights on a fiery society miss with a spirit to match his own. What happens when Lady Amanda Gascoigne-Lake's father rejects the sailor's suit, and an ancient brooch with mystical power portends doom?
This one-man, one-act, two scene play is a biography of Frederick Douglass. It chronicles the life of Douglass beginning with childhood in the plantation system, his life as a young adult slave, the escape to freedom and the gradual rise to prominence as a national spokesperson and advocate for racial equality and the abolition of slavery. The author blends his words and those of Douglass to create a compelling, uncompromising life story of an American slave turned American statesman. With history as a backdrop we discover that the words of Douglass resonate through the generations and are as meaningful today as they were during slavery, the Civil War and emancipation. Those words, in essence, are a message of hope and a reminder that the value of life is not determined by the color of one's skin.
Address By Hon. Frederick Douglass Delivered In The Metropolitan A. M. E. Church, Washington, D.c., Tuesday, January 9, 1894
Frederick Douglass (born Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey, c. February 1818 - February 20, 1895) was an African-American social reformer, orator, writer and statesman. After escaping from slavery, he became a leader of the abolitionist movement, gaining note for his dazzling oratory and incisive antislavery writing. He stood as a living counter-example to slaveholders' arguments that slaves did not have the intellectual capacity to function as independent American citizens.Many Northerners also found it hard to believe that such a great orator had been a slave.
