From Plank Road Publishingby Karl Hitzemann
Frederick Douglass was born a slave in Talbot County, Maryland. From a very early age, Douglass realized that he not only wanted his own freedom, but he also wanted freedom for all slaves. He went on to become a powerful speaker, a strong abolitionist, and an acclaimed author. He worked with Presidents Lincoln and Johnson to try to secure freedom for the slaves, as well as equal rights for African Americans and women.
To celebrate the life of this great man, we have created a song that speaks about the type of person he was. This song also gives you the opportunity to use some of the many great quotes from his speeches and writings.
The song itself is unison fairly easy to learn. The accompaniment features a piano, guitars, banjo, flugelhorn, and strings. (from Music K-8, Vol. 28, No. 3)
