A black and white wood engraving print of an abolitionist meeting in Tremont Temple in Boston, MA on December 3, 1860. Frederick Douglass, a Black man, wears long pants, a waistcoat, and a long coat on the stage in the center of the image. He stands with one hand on his hip and the other out-raised, his mouth open as he speaks back to an unruly crowd at the lower left and in the background around the stage. Officers attempt to quell the crowd in the bottom center of the image. A white man on stage steps towards Douglass and has his hand on Douglass's shoulder. Other white men stand on stage looking at the crowd. On the far right midground, a white man with a beard in a top hat, long pants, and knee-length coat has his left hand in his pocket and his right hand up. In the upper left of the image, three women in bonnets fight on a jutting balcony.
