Donald L. Dowridge, Jr is an expert on the life and history of Frederick Douglass. His one-man show on the famous abolitionist spotlights Doulgass’ triumphant life after slavery took a tremendous toll on his mental health. “Even when Frederick Douglass became prominent, he still struggled with past traumas and obstacles. He wrote speeches with a rebellious mind and burning heart until the day he passed away. HE NEVER STOPPED AGITATING… I encourage YOU to live beyond your traumas and fight for your dreams!” – Donald L. Dowridge, Jr.
