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 for they allow us to gain a better understanding of how far our society has come 12 luglio 2016
Di Jayah - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
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).

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.

Di Erica Gilkey - Pubblicato su

Good read. It took me a little less than 2 weeks to read this book. I only read it on the train to and from work so when I did finish it I had mixed feelings. I wanted to know more about his life once he was finally in the free state. He didn't explain how he navigated through the slave states to reach his final destination. He gave his reasons. Understandable for the time which was before emancipation but I was still curious and looking forward to reading about that. Also at the end he says he sent for his wife...She wasn't mentioned throughout the entire book then she pops up. Where and when did they meet? I'm really nip picking but overall a very good read. I definitely took advantage of the dictionary that was available on Kindle Unlimited. This guys vocabulary was crazy also some words we just don't use in today's world. Looking for another book to get lost in.

5.0 su 5 stelle White america could learn a few things from this book 25 settembre 2016
Di what a awesome game.i love it - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
It was a very detailed story of what life in slavery was like. From dealing with lazy, entitled, white slave masters, to remaining hidden even in the north from such a dispicable family. It shines truth to the deluded mentality of southerners who believed it was acceptable to own and treat another human being like a piece of property. My favorite part was her explanation of freedom in the north. Even though a former slave could finally be free from being someone else's property, they were still never free from racism. And much like today, many people still believe the abuse and mistreatment of black Americans is acceptable simply because it is the status quo.

5.0 su 5 stelle Brutality, Compassion, Perseverance and Hope. 6 ottobre 2015
Di The Black Mzungu - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Obviously I did not enjoy what happened, and there has much been written about the inhumane institution of slavery, however, I found this page-turner a different perspective. It is the perspective of the so called fair-skinned female house slave. It helps dispel the sometimes careless comparisons of the easy life of the, often fair-complexioned ‘house-slave' and the blistered darker 'field-slave'. The author and her family, despite their access to the homes of their masters, and being genetically tied to their masters, fought vigorously for their freedom from a degrading existence. There was no loyalty to their masters, who were often their cousins, fathers, and foster-children.

This is also a story of dominance of women. The author illustrates that regardless of the times, sexual abuse is a matter of control more than pleasure. Ms. Jacobs's master often used financial interest to justify his control but his obsession with Ms. Jacobs seemed obviously a matter of mere control and power which is something that still resonates today.

But, the book also shows that some people are compassionate regardless of their status and white privilege, giving hope in humanity.
