READ! “The Talented Mr. James Wormley” by Streets of Washington

James Wormley was a confidant of Frederick Douglass during his years in Washington. Wormley and Douglass dined together. Wormley was featured and praised in the pages of the New National Era. Wormley was a pallbearer for Anna Murray Douglass’ funeral. (Wormley was also, reportedly, by President Lincoln’s side as he died in the Petersen House.)
