The Douglass Cemetery Association was founded in 1895 as a non-denominational, segregated cemetery for Alexandria's African American community. The Douglass Cemetery is named in memory of Frederick Douglass, who was an American abolitionist, writer, statesman, orator and former slave who worked to improve the lives of African Americans during his lifetime. Hundreds of African Americans were buried in this cemetery while it was in operation between 1896 and 1975.

"Without a struggle, there can be no progress."
