Frederick Douglass Newspapers Digital Collection from Library of Congress

The Library of Congress has digitized a number of its collections, making it accessible to the public at all times. These are great ways to get primary source documents into the hands of your students. Being in Rochester, today we highlight the collection of newspapers edited by Frederick Douglass.

These three papers were:

The North Star (Rochester, N.Y.), 1847-1851

Frederick Douglass’ Paper (Rochester, N.Y.), 1851-1860

New National Era (Washington, D.C.), 1870-1874
