Social Service

Frederick Douglass Family Initiatives wants to inspire and empower one million young people to do and be more than they ever dreamed possible. In honor of Douglass’s 200th birthday, we will print and distribute one million hardcover copies of a special Bicentennial Edition of his classic auto-biography, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave.

We’ll ask one million students across the country to read the book and, in 2018, the Bicentennial year, participate in meaningful service projects within their communities and internationally. They will also have the opportunity to win gifts, trips and scholarships.
