Descrizione prodotto


Frederick Douglass (1818–1895) was an American social reformer, orator, writer and statesman. After escaping from slavery, he became a leader of the abolitionist movement, gaining renown for his dazzling oratory and incisive antislavery writing. He stood as a living counter-example to slaveholders' arguments that slaves did not have the intellectual capacity to function as independent American citizens. He became a major speaker for the cause of abolition. In addition to his oratory, Douglass wrote several autobiographies, eloquently describing his life as a slave, and his struggles to be free. His classic autobiography, Life and Times of Frederick Douglass, is one of the best known accounts of American slavery. After the Civil War, Douglass remained very active in America's struggle to reach its potential as a "land of the free". Douglass actively supported women's suffrage. Following the war, he worked on behalf of equal rights for freedmen, and held multiple public offices. Douglass was a firm believer in the equality of all people, whether black, female, Native American, or recent immigrant. He was fond of saying, "I would unite with anybody to do right and with nobody to do wrong."

5.0 su 5 stelle This is the edition to buy 21 novembre 2014
Di Timothy E. Bigler - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This is the edition close to the original. Be careful as many other editions are out with additional opinions by modern "interpreters". This book, from the original author, needs no added opinions or editorials.

This not a copy of the original text it was "revised for common core standards" as it says on the book. In other words, you're not getting the whole story as written by Fredrick Douglass.

5.0 su 5 stelle for they allow us to gain a better understanding of how far our society has come 12 luglio 2016
Di Jayah - Pubblicato su

This autobiography was assigned to me when I was a junior in high school. Three years later, as a sophomore in college, I was asked to read the book again for my class on Black Thought and Literature. I wish that I had taken the time to slow down and analyze Frederick Douglass' narrative from a literal, analytical, and figurative perspective. Had I done that the first time around—as opposed to treating the book as another required reading that I needed to speed-read through—I believe that my understanding would have been more in-depth and meaningful. The emotion and conviction with which the author writes is not only poetic and moving, but captivating as well. The imagery, combined with Douglass' views on religion's role in the enslavement of black bodies, masterfully paints a story that (in combination with other narratives) has, unfortunately, been lost throughout time. In fact, many Black writers during this period refused to publish their experiences for fear that they will be caught and returned to slavery. In other cases, some writers used pen names to add some anonymity to their experiences. Nevertheless, such works should be cherished and valued; for they allow us to gain a better understanding of how far our society has come, and how much more needs to be done to ensure a future where everyone is equal (in the truest sense of the word).

5.0 su 5 stelle Important genre to read 14 novembre 2016
Di Apollonius - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
The savage American culture needs to calm itself. For all the good and promise, there is an equal weight of meaness and destruction. What's missing are moral precepts found in Abrahamic teachings. The insidious nature of nativistic racism is so fixed in us we hardly even know it.

What narratives like this remind us of is how cruel and unjustice we truly can be. Narratives like this should be required reading in our schools. "Older" generations are probably a lost cause. The best we can hope is to leave future generations a chance to make things right.

The book shows very well the difficult circumstances that slaves in America had to live under. It also shows how humans can become so mean and tyrannical when given ultimate power over someone. This is also how dictators are born in our world. When someone is given power over another that person's pride can get out of control. They get away with one thing, then another, and another. Their friends are likewise minded and tell each other that they are great guys, it goes to their heads. The book also shows how if you look different from another and you have the power then you can assume you are better. Racism can develop and other cruel things too. God wants us to work together. Appreciate each other, enjoy the talents of everyone, we can all help our nation and world if we throw unrestricted selfish pride to the side. A little pride isn't bad but overgrown pride is destructive. Just as the Bible says, "Pride goeth before the fall."
