Life and Times of Frederick Douglass

Frederick Douglass


PUBLISHED: 30th June 2000
ISBN: 9780806508658
ANNOTATION:
This is the first paperback facsimile edition of a work which contributed strongly to the Black people's struggle for freedom and equality. Born in slavery in Maryland in 1817, Frederick Douglass escaped from servitude twenty years later, joined the ranks of the Abolitionists and devoted a long and fruitful life to the winning of freedom for his people. Douglass worked with William Lloyd Garrison, Wendell Phillips and John Brown, and during the Civil War was so highly regarded by Abraham Lincoln for his contributions to the Union cause that the Great Emancipator called him "the most meritorious person I have ever seen." A fervent integrationist, Douglass was the first of the "freedom riders" and "sit-ins". He felt that true freedom could not come for him until all Blacks were free and equal, and he gave voice and direction to the movement to achieve this goal. Told in Frederick Douglass's own words, this volume is an important work of Americana.

Author Biography

Frederick Douglass was born a slave and escaped to freedom in his twenties. "My Bondage and My Freedom" (1855) was written after he had established himself as a newspaper editor. In this book, Douglass expands upon his previous accounts of his years as a slave. With great psychological penetration, he probes the long-term and corrosive effects of slavery and comments upon his active resistance to the segregation he encounters in the North.
