Overview

Frederick Douglass was a man of his time and race, a leader and fighter against the irrational and inhuman treatment of the blacks. This narrative is one of the most influential among African-American books denouncing the Institution of Slavery. It was written in 1845, over fifty years after the narrative of the great son of Africa Olaudah Equiano (1797).

Being a slave himself, the accounts Douglass narrates are very important as a primary source that describes the endurances and tribulations he had suffered under the slavery of the Southern territories, especially in Maryland. His life was full of bitterness, grief and sorrow. He came to this world not knowing his father, probably a white man. His mother was removed early from his life, his brothers were strangers, his friends were temporary, and the sound of the whip as a striking electric beam from the caves of hell itself was a common picture to observe.
