Autobiography of Frederick Douglass, Vol. 2

Autobiography of Frederick Douglass, Vol. 2

Ossie Davis reads excerpts from Frederick Douglass’ autobiography, edited by Dr. Philip Foner, which traces the abolitionist and statesman’s life from early childhood through to his significant political accomplishments. This second volume begins with Douglass’ editorial leadership at the anti-slavery newspaper The North Star (Rochester, New York), describes his activity as station master and conductor on the Underground Railroad, touches on his political asylum in England following the hanging of John Brown, speaks of the Civil War and details Douglass’ meeting with Abraham Lincoln. (See also FW05522 Autobiography of Frederick Douglass, Vol. 1.)
