Beschreibung

Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave, Written by Himself is the most relevant nineteenth-century slave narrative written by a former male slave, and a highly influential work for the anti-slavery movement. It was Douglass' first autobiography and in it he describes his triumphant progress from slavery to freedom and makes it parallel to his liberating journey from illiteracy to literacy. As such, is a powerful illustration of a black man's ambition to be free in the land of the free.

Frederick Douglass (born Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey, c.?February 1818 - February 20, 1895) was an African-American social reformer, abolitionist, orator, writer, and statesman. After escaping from slavery in Maryland, he became a national leader of the abolitionist movement from Massachusetts and New York, gaining note for his dazzling oratory and incisive antislavery writings. In his time he was described by abolitionists as a living counter-example to slaveholders' arguments that slaves lacked the intellectual capacity to function as independent American citizens. Northerners at the time found it hard to believe that such a great orator had once been a slave.
