Book summary

This biography of Frederick Douglass covers the life of an orator, abolitionist and writer. Douglass was one of the most powerful voices for freedom in the United States and his autobiographies ("Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass") have shaped the American view of slavery. In this biography, McFeely presents Douglass as a central figure of his time, who identified slavery as the cause of the Civil War. He also examines fully the complex relationship Douglass maintained with his illiterate wife, his children who were for ever in awe of their famous father and well-educated women friends. [via]
