Frederick Douglass

Born a slave, the nineteenth-century abolitionist Frederick Douglass was not only one of the best orators in American history, he was also one of the most dashing—whatever it takes to captivate an audience. Izzy would love to see someone resurrect Douglass’ romantic hairstyle, a sort of a combed-over afro.


  1. There was a reference to Douglass’s hairstyle in the film Unbreakable, Elijah’s hairstyle seemed reminiscent of Douglass’s, implying a noble character. This turned out to be a subtle red-herring.

    Other than that, I’ve seen no further modern references to Douglass’s hairstyle or his other stylistic marks.
