Abolition fanaticism in New York : speech of a runaway slave from Baltimore, at an abolition meeting in New York, held May 11, 1847


A pamphlet containing a speech by American abolitionist Frederick Douglass about abolition fanaticism in New York. Douglass was born into slavery in Maryland in 1818, but was able to escape from his enslavers at the age of 20. He went on to become a renowned abolitionist, editor, and orator, traveling to speak out against the practice of slavery. The title page of the pamphlet provides the alternate title of the speech as "Flaming abolition speech delivered by the runaway slave, Frederick Douglass, at the anniversary of the American Anti-Slavery Society, in the Tabernacle, New York, May 11, 1847."
