Fredrick Douglas Statue NYC Statues

 

This is the statue of abolitionist, statesman and orator, Frederick Douglass located at the northwest corner of Central Park in Harlem. The 8-foot bronze statue is surrounded by a fountain memorial that is emblazoned with quotations and located a traffic circle at the corner of 110th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard — known as the Gateway to Harlem.

 “From Frederick Douglass, we learned that we have the right to be free,” said Kenneth Morris, president of the Frederick Douglass Family Foundation, the great-great-great-grandson of Douglass. Douglass is one of the few African Americans to be memorialized in a work of public art in the city.
