Synopsis: A vivid biography of the black slave who achieved freedom, fame, and fortune through dedication to liberty

Review: Originally published in 1948, this was one of the first modern biographies of Frederick Douglass, and according to noted historian James M. McPherson, it is still a model of "fairness and readability." Douglass himself wrote three autobiographies, so Benjamin Quarles offers only a brief account of the abolitionist's early life, dealing with his childhood in slavery and his escape from the peculiar institution in just a few pages. He devotes more time to Douglass's travels in Britain, which were undertaken after publication of the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass because he feared capture and re-enslavement. Douglass's is a remarkable life, a trajectory from illiterate slave to world-renowned lecturer for abolition and women's rights, newspaper editor, friend of presidents, and the holder of three prominent government positions.
