See "Frederick Douglass" as portrayed by Michael Crutcher

You're invited to meet "Frederick Douglass," presented by the Friends of the Boca Raton Public Library, Inc. as part of the bi-annual Betty Grinnan Friends of the Library Program for American History.

Frederick Douglass will be portrayed by Michael Crutcher, a retiree from the United States Army, and former assistant professor at University of Kentucky’s Lexington Community College. Crutcher began his acting career with Images Modeling and Acting Agency in Lexington, Kentucky. Since then, he has been in several television commercials and training videos. 

Michael Crutcher as Frederick Douglass

He was a stand-in actor in the movie Seabiscuit and can be seen in the movie Dreamer, with actors Dakota Fanning and Kurt Russell. Crutcher is a devout scholar of Frederick Douglass and believes his calling is to share Douglass’ principle of freedom, equality, religion, and self-esteem.
