Overview

Born into slavery, Frederick Douglass became a prominent social reformer, abolitionist, orator and statesman, who led an intriguing life. After escaping from slavery in Maryland, he became a national leader of the abolitionist movement in Massachusetts and New York, winning acclaim for his outstanding ability as an orator. Douglass wrote three autobiographies, chronicling his life’s experiences as a slave and social reformer, as well as penning incisive antislavery writing. His oratorical and literary brilliance thrust him into the forefront of U.S politics and he became the first African American to be nominated for Vice President. This comprehensive eBook presents Douglass’ complete published works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
