Leigh Fought, Ph.D., associate professor of history, director of gender and women's studies, and author of "Women in the World of Frederick Douglass," appeared on the BYUradio program "Top of Mind" with Julie Rose in the segment "The Untold Story of Anna Murray Douglass."

From the website: "Frederick Douglass, famous escaped slave turned abolitionist and orator, was the most photographed man of his time. He sat for more than 160 portraits that we know of, and yet, there are only two known pictures of his wife, Anna Murray Douglass. But don’t be fooled, says historian Leigh Fought. Anna Murray Douglass’s behind-the-scenes support helped make her husband the powerhouse he was."
