Special Order


Written more than a century ago by Frederick Douglass, a former slave who went on to become a famous orator, writer, journalist, U.S. minister, and a leader of his people, this masterpiece is one of the most eloquent indictments of slavery ever recorded. Douglass's shocking narrative takes the reader into the world of the South's antebellum plantations and reveals the daily terrors he suffered as a slave, the brutalities of his owners and overseers, and his harrowing escape to the North. This book sheds invaluable light on one of the most unjust periods in the history of America.
