Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass By Frederick Douglass
Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass is an 1845 memoir and treatise on abolition written by well-known orator and former slave Frederick Douglass throughout his time in Lynn, Massachusetts.
Former slave, impassioned abolitionist, good author, newspaper editor and eloquent orator whose speeches fired the abolitionist trigger, Frederick Douglass led an astounding life. Bodily abuse, deprivation and tragedy plagued his early years, but via sheer power of character he was in a position to overcome these obstacles to turn into a number one spokesman for his folks. On this, the first and most ceaselessly learn of his three autobiographies, Douglass gives graphic descriptions of his childhood and horrifying experiences as a slave in addition to a harrowing document of his dramatic escape to the North and eventual freedom.
