The Douglass OS and The Douglass Browser are named in Honor of Frederick Douglass - An African American icon who stood for the equality of all people and the possibility of a better tomorrow. A runaway slave before the Civil War, Douglass became an abolitionist, a supporter of women’s suffrage, and a bridge between communities. By basing the Douglass OS on his legacy, we look to bring his social activism and determination into the lives of people today.
