Frederick Douglass Family Initiatives wants to inspire and empower one million young people to do and be more than they ever dreamed possible. In honor of Douglass’s 200th birthday, we will print and distribute one million hardcover copies of a special Bicentennial Edition of the Narrative. We’ll ask one million students across the country to read the book and, in 2018, the Bicentennial year, participate in meaningful service projects within their communities and internationally. By the end of 2018, we want to give away one million copies. Giving away one million copies of the Narrative will be a challenge that FDFI can't take on alone. Make a tax deductible donation directly to FDFI to help fund the project. Our cost to print, distribute and manage the project is $4 per book. Help us bring 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 books or more to young people everywhere. For more info: CBS news report about the launch event at the Library of Congress:
