About the Author

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 and was known for his dazzling oratory and incisive writing. He wrote several autobiographies that eloquently described his life as a slave and his struggles to be free, including his first and best-known work, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, which was influential in gaining support for abolition.
