By: Frederick Douglass (Author)

He was born a slave and when he died his body lay in state in the rotunda of the Capitol in Washington, D.C. In MY BONDAGE AND MY FREEDOM, Frederick Douglass details the early stages of his remarkable journey. First published in 1855—:at the height of Douglass’:s involvement in the abolitionist movement—:his narrative describes the steps that had led him to the forefront of the struggle for racial justice. Abolitionist sentiment was by no means common in the “:free states”: to which Douglass had fled. Persons of color were considered naturally inferior to Caucasians—:even among many of those who were active in the movement. The powerful voice of Frederick Douglass gave the lie to that sentiment. His eloquence and courage symbolized at a critical moment to true potential of the thousands who were enslaved, denied education, and destined, it seemed, to spend their lives in cruel labor from which they, themselves, received no benefit and no credit. With his escape from bondage, Frederick Douglass took his voice to the only part of his country where it could be heard. Once there, he took it across the free states of his own country and over the ocean to the British Isles. MY BONDAGE AND MY FREEDOM has taken that voice across centuries.
