The first initiative, a national youth literacy and social service project, will be officially launched to the public in Washington D.C. on February 28, 2017. On this day, FDFI will present its newly published, Bicentennial Edition of the classic, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave. The Library of Congress lists this autobiography as one of the 88 Books that Shaped America. The Narrative helped change the course of the U.S. Abolitionist Movement in the mid-nineteenth century and has changed the lives of readers ever since. We believe in its power to positively influence and agitate young hearts and minds today.
