Escape to Freedom

(1976)
The story of young Frederick Douglass
A Book by

 
 
Historical drama / 3 Black m, 1 Black f, 2 White m, 1 White f / Various sets / Escape to Freedom is very useful in an educational context for both Black and White children as a tool to teach them about slavery-- and also about the importance of education. The story focuses on the boyhood of Frederick Douglass, born a slave and in later life an abolitionist and orator. Much of the plot centers on Fred's struggle to learn to read, the surest way to freedom. Eventually he attains his freedom and runs off disguised as a free sailor.
