Narrative Of The Life Of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave

96 pages2 hours


Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass is the moving autobiography by the former slave and prominent abolitionist. With unabashed honesty Douglass recounts his early years on a Maryland plantation, his relationships with his masters, his momentous discovery of the link between literacy and bondage, and his eventual flight to freedom.

A bestseller when published in 1845, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass was an influential text in the anti-slavery movement, and the power and clarity of Douglass’s writing were a credible counter-argument to the prejudiced opinions towards African-Americans held by many at the time.
