Frederick Douglass (1818-1895) was the leading African American abolitionist of the nineteenth century. His “Narrative,” published in 1845, is a classic account of self-education as well as the most influential slave narrative. Douglass’s belief that the progress from slavery to freedom required mental liberation as well as physical liberation provides the theme for this presentation.
