Speaking Engagements

This is a list of the places where Douglass was known to have given lectures during his visit. It is based on the list published in John Blassingame (ed) The Frederick Douglass Papers. Series One: Speeches, Debates and Interviews. Volume 1: 1841-46 (New Haven and London: Yale University Press, 1979).

This volume reconstructs the text of some of his lectures from reports in local newspapers. These engagements are shown in bold type. Further research in local libraries and archives may uncover reports of some of the other lectures not included in Blassingame's collection.
