Frederick Douglass: A Life From Beginning to End

Slavery is a dark spot in the history of the United States, a time when the rights of African-Americans were non-existent. Slaves were beaten, mutilated, raped, and killed with impunity. Their lives were a living hell from which death was the only escape they could dare to hope for. From this darkness, many heroes emerged, one of which was a man named Frederick Douglass. Born a slave in Maryland, Douglass believed he had found the key to the power of the white man—education. He taught himself to read and write, and then he proceeded to teach other slaves to read and write as well. 

Inside you will read about...
✓ On the Backs of Slaves: The Role of Slavery in the Economic Development of a New World 
✓ Born into Slavery: Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey 
✓ Escape to the North: Douglass' escape and early life as a free man 
✓ Equality and War: Douglass' Work as a Free Man 
✓ Suffrage and Service: Douglass' Other Causes and Later Life 
And much more!

As a slave, Frederick Douglass endured many cases of abuse and indignity while he waited to make his escape. On his third attempt, he finally succeeded, and once free, he proceeded to fight tirelessly throughout his life for the freedom and equality of all people. He was a true believer in the principles expressed in the Declaration of Independence and codified in the United States Constitution. He became a celebrated orator, writer, and statesman, and he was always an abolitionist. His work in this regard helped abolish slavery in all of the United States, and he fought passionately for the equality of all people regardless of race or sex throughout the whole of his life. He is a true American hero. This book tells the compelling story of his life in succinct, yet informative detail that is both educational and entertaining.
