Description:
In 1847, Frederick Douglass founded the abolitionist newspaper entitled "The North Star" in Rochester, N.Y. In 1851, "The North Star" merged with The Liberty Paper Party in Syracuse, NY, and its name changed to "Frederick Douglass' Paper." In addition to the newspaper's abolitionist message, it also urged for gender equality and the rights of other oppressed groups. The paper was in circulation until 1860.
