道格拉斯脫逃之後,他想要讓所有的奴隸都能得到解放,因此他在紐約的羅契斯特市發行了一份名為「北極星報」 (The North Star) 的報紙。這個名字的典故其來有自,因為奴隸常在晚上脫逃,而逃亡中的奴隸總是跟隨著夜空中的北極星得到自由;道格拉斯的目標是「廢除各種形式及各方面的奴隸制度,促進有色人種的道德及知識改善並加速解放三百萬身陷奴隸制度的同胞們。」道格拉斯還做了那些事來促進解放運動呢?

After Douglass escaped, he wanted to promote freedom for all slaves. He published a newspaper in Rochester, New York, called The North Star. It got its name because slaves escaping at night followed the North Star in the sky to freedom. Douglass's goals were to "abolish slavery in all its forms and aspects, promote the moral and intellectual improvement of the COLORED PEOPLE, and hasten the day of FREEDOM to the Three Millions of our enslaved fellow countrymen." How else did Douglass promote freedom?
