Description

My Bondage and My Freedom is an autobiographical slave narrative written by Frederick Douglass and published in 1855. It is the second of three autobiographies written by Douglass, and is mainly an expansion of his first (Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass), discussing in greater detail his transition from bondage to liberty. Following his liberation, Douglass, a former slave, went on to become a prominent abolitionist, speaker, author, and publisher.

    This is classic literary gold for the ages. Timeless truths are written therein. Brilliantly and beautifully on display for all to see.

    I won't soon forget Mr. Frederick Douglass...my view of American history is forever changed. Although 150+ years have past since its authorship, it is as poignant as current events!
