9781582183664: Life and Times of Frederick Douglass

Born around 1817 in Maryland, Frederick Douglass was a former plantation slave who went on to become a brilliant writer and eloquent orator. In this amazing first-hand narrative, published in 1881, he vividly recounts his early years, which were filled with physical abuse, deprivation, and tragedy; his dramatic escapes to the North, recapture, and eventual freedom; his work for the Anti-Slavery Society and influential role in speaking for other African-Americans; his abolitionist campaigns, and crusade for full civil rights for former slaves.

From the Back Cover:

This is the first paperback facsimile edition of a work which contributed strongly to the Black people's struggle for freedom and equality.

Born in slavery in Maryland in 1817, Frederick Douglass escaped from servitude twenty years later, joined the ranks of the Abolitionists and devoted a long and fruitful life to the winning of freedom for his people.

Douglass worked with William Lloyd Garrison, Wendell Phillips and John Brown, and during the Civil War was so highly regarded by Abraham Lincoln for his contributions to the Union cause that the Great Emancipator called him "the most meritorious person I have ever seen." A fervent integrationist, Douglass was the first of the "freedom riders" and "sit-ins". He felt that true freedom could not come for him until all Blacks were free and equal, and he gave voice and direction to the movement to achieve this goal.

Told in Frederick Douglass's own words, this volume is an important work of Americana.

About the Author:

Frederick Douglass, an outspoken abolitionist, was born into slavery in 1818 and, after his escape in 1838, repeatedly risked his own freedom as an antislavery lecturer, writer, and publisher.

Book Description Digital Scanning Inc., 2001. Trade Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Frederick Douglass, (1817-1895), was the leading spokesman for African Americans in the 1800's. Born a slave, Douglass became a noted reformer, author, and speaker. He devoted his life to the abolition of slavery and the fight for black rights. Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey was born in Tuckahoe, MD. He changed his name to Douglass to avoid capture after he fled from his master in 1838. He arrived in New Bedford, Massachusetts and because he was a black man, could only find work as an unskilled laborer. His life changed from that of an unskilled laborer to sought-after speaker when the Massachusetts Antislavery Society hired him as a lecturer. Frederick Douglass was an outspoken pioneer in the anti-slavery movement. He protested the discriminatory practices of segregated employment, education, worship and public transportation. His house was a station on the Underground Railroad. He conferred with Abraham Lincoln on several occasions and helped recruit African Americans for the Union Army during the Civil War. The Life and Times of Frederick Douglass is the expanded version of the autobiography he published in England. Bookseller Inventory # 000017
