Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass

Former slave, impassioned abolitionist, brilliant author, newspaper editor and eloquent orator whose speeches fired the abolitionist cause, Frederick Douglass (1818–1895) led an astounding life. Physical abuse, deprivation and tragedy plagued his early years, yet through sheer force of character he used to be in a position to triumph over these obstacles to change into a leading spokesman for his people.
In this, the first and most regularly read of his three autobiographies, Douglass provides graphic descriptions of his childhood and horrifying experiences as a slave in addition to a harrowing record of his dramatic escape to the North and eventual freedom.
Published in 1845 to quell doubts about his origins — since few slaves of that period could write — the Narrative is admired today for its abnormal passion, sensitive and vivid descriptions and storytelling power. It belongs in the library of any individual interested in African-American history and the life of one of the crucial country’s most courageous and influential champions of civil rights. A selection of the Common Core State Standards Initiative.
