Creators White, Josiah (1781-1850)
Abstract Discovered only in the past fifteen years , these letters are very valuable. While Douglass was a leader in the Philadelphia Female Anti-Slavery Society, these letters are unique in providing her individual voice—particularly important for a movement that was for African Americans but for which the bulk of the extant documents come from white women. These letters, by contrast, offer an illuminating look at Douglass's activism and the challenges she faced, as well as the nature of an interracial friendship in the nineteenth-century US.
