In his extensive writings, Frederick Douglass revealed little about his private life. Leigh Fought aims to reveal more about the life of the famed abolitionist off the public stage. This biography of the circle of women around Frederick Douglass promises to show the connections between his public and private life, as well as reveal connections among enslaved women, free black women, abolitionist circles, and nineteenth-century politics and culture in the North and South before and after the Civil War.
