“Our mission at the Bailey-Groce Family Foundation Inc. is to honor and preserve the profound legacy of our ancestor, Frederick Douglass, and his family. Founded in Talbot County, Maryland, by descendants of Perry Bailey, our aim is to enrich the youth through historical education, integrity, trade, and knowledge. We aspire to uplift the moral standards of our esteemed Great Uncle Frederick while inspiring the younger generation to reach higher expectations of themselves. Through these efforts, we are committed to fostering a deeper understanding of history and empowering youth to embrace integrity, knowledge, and a strong sense of self.”
