Joseph H. Douglass (1871-1935), grandson of great abolitionist Frederick Douglass, was billed the most talented violinist of the race studied at the New England Conservatory from 1889 to 1891 and later played professionally in Washington D.C., where he lived with his family. During the next 40 years he played recitals throughout the United States, even playing with individuals such as Paul Lawrence Dunbar. Unfortunately, his gift was only recorded on 2 titles and never issued and it was known that he never recorded again.
