Frederick Douglass
The work of a man who wrote of racial prejudice with a frankness highly unusual for the era in which he lived, this concise, readable survey examines the life of one of the most influential promoters of civil rights. Included are Douglass's early life in slavery, his escape from Maryland to New York, his power and charisma as a public speaker and crusader for the abolitionist cause, his accomplishments as a journalist and leader of his people, the influence he wielded with President Lincoln, and much more. A thoughtful and admiring account of a great man, this book is essential reading for students of African-American history and anyone interested in the history of the civil rights movement. Unabridged republication of a classic, originally published in 1899.
