The powerful story of slavery that has become a classic of American autobiography, now in an authoritative edition. This dramatic autobiography of the early life of an American slave was first published in 1845, when its young author had just achieved his freedom. Douglass' eloquence gives a clear indication of the powerful principles that led him to become the first great African-American leader in the United States. *** Frederick Douglass was born into slavery in 1818, and after his escape in 1838 repeatedly risked his own freedom as an antislavery speaker, writer and publisher.

When studying slavery in American History, students are often exposed to the arguments of Abolitionists and the defense of the peculiar institution by Southerners. The narrative by Frederick Douglass gives a voice to the slaves. The book is 124 pages long and very quick to read. You can also download this book from the internet, for free, at Project Gutenberg. The difference is that this version has a ten-page introduction by Peter Gomes.
