This moving, eloquently told first-person account of a man who was born and raised as a slave, made two attempts at escape before reaching freedom, educated himself against all odds, and went on to become a leading abolitionist and spokesperson for African Americans should be essential reading for anyone who truly wants to understand American history. This unabridged 1855 edition also contains a new introduction by scholar of African American philosophy Bill E Lawson, an appendix including extracts from speeches, and a fascinating letter Douglass wrote in his later years to his former master.
