After publishing his Narrative​, Frederick Douglass' celebrity and risk of being captured and returned to his life as a slave, were growing. To avoid this fate, Douglass embarked on a two year tour of Ireland, Scotland, and England. It was on this journey that Douglass transcended his role as an American abolitionist and solidified his position as a figure of the Atlantic world.
