Description


A generation before Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Du Bois, Frederick Douglass was a leading black writer and abolitionist in America, and his memoir Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass tells his story while espousing the liberation of African Americans in the United States. The autobiography was published in the 1840s, two decades before the Civil War, and it is significant for its philosophical depth and conveyance of its author's unbroken and enduring spirit, characteristics that were often lacking from other slave memoirs - and there were many - also published at this time.
