ladies and gentlemen frederick douglass has done it all! he was an advisor to lincoln, orator and runaway slave. this is a great resd for those who love historicsl nonfiction. He takes you through all of his ups and downs. he gives you an amazing view of what his life was like as a slave. chilling at some moments but this book shows how far anyone can go if they put their mind to it.

I loved this book. What I found most amazing was that this book was written by a man who was bred soley for the purpose of slavery. He was intentionally kept low, uneducated, spiritually weakened, yet he had the incredible mind to see through the lies. Though raised to be inferior, Douglass had the clarity of mind to see his life being worth far more than what his oppressors knowingly and intentionally perpetuated. This man was absolutely brilliant. The first three-quarters are very interesting, though, I felt that it sort of lost its fizzle toward the end.
