The Life of Frederick Douglass

Speaking Out Against Slavery

Series: Legendary African Americans

By Anne Schraff

Despite being a slave, Douglass learned to read and write. At age 21, he escaped from slavery and forged a new life for himself as a free man. Intelligent and charismatic, Douglass became the leading voice against slavery in the 1800s. "There is no way a nation can call itself free and accept slavery," said Frederick Douglass. Middle-grade readers and up will respond to Anne Schraff's fresh, lively retelling of Douglass's story. To allow republication of the original text into ebook, paperback, and trade editions, this book is developed from FREDERICK DOUGLASS: SPEAKING OUT AGAINST SLAVERY.
