The Frederick Douglass Book Center was founded by Richard B. Moore in 1942.  Richard B. Moore was a Caribbean activist and businessman who stood for socialism and black nationalism.  The Frederick Douglass Center was launched with help from friend and second wife Lodie Biggs.  Biggs later went on to become the sales representative of the Center.
