Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass by Fredrick Douglass Book Summary

This autobiography is the first book from the brilliant writer, advocate, and abolitionist Frederick Douglass. Relating the story of Douglass’ life from his birth into slavery to his escape and first few years of freedom, this account became instrumental in stirring up anti-slavery sentiments before the Civil War. Douglass is born a slave in eastern Maryland, never knowing his father and separated from his mother as a young child. When his owner’s wife begins to teach him to read, and is subsequently chastised for it, Douglass discovers that the path to freedom is through education. His young life is a constant battle against injustice, peaking with an intense fight against the brutal slave driver Mr. Covey. Yet Douglass manages to free himself from captivity and devote his life to freeing others. It’s a chilling reminder of the horrors of slavery and an inspirational portrait of a great mind triumphing over oppressive forces.

Luv it!. Read this for history class and it is so stupendous!!!!

Timeless Piece. This book not only calls the morality of a nation to the carpet... It also questions the motivating factors whether religion, economics, or simply white supremacy.

Bondage. Great read so far, I can’t seem to put the book down.

Best book ever written. I have read the narrative of Equiano, David Walker, Maria Stewart, Harriet Jacobs, and all fall short of my masterfully written narrative which perfectly captures the hardships and cruel lives slaves endured. My book is a must read!

Waited too long.. I read this for a class. Though I wished I would have read 20 years ago. A first person account of what it was like at the time of shame in our country's history and how against odds one survived. Thoughts on man, religion and freedom that I will remember forever.

Great. Great narrative by one of the classic negro heroes

Great insight. This is a great book to give you first hand accounts of the ugliness of slavery. The book picks up after first couple of chapters. Mr. Douglas is a good writer but don't expect what you would expect from a professional writer. Enjoy!

The Greatest Sin. At the time of reading this narrative, almost 200 years have passed. I would like to say that it was so long ago and things have changed. Seeing a confederate flag flown in the US Capitol reminds me otherwise. It remains that until America truly acknowledges its great sin, this record will loop. Frederick Douglas was clear on how every manner of mental gymnastics and religious sleight of hand were used to justify slavery. It seems that same mental prison and moral bereft mindset continue on under the banner of “free speech.” I want to say these people need to read memoirs like this and they would know better. But willful ignorance dominated Mr. Douglas’s day and it still does today. The remaining hope, as he made clear, is the education of the marginalized as the ticket to freedom from persecution.

Sup. It was good

A must read. A story of unbelievable triumph. This book is superb. It literally takes you back to that time in history when Africans were slaves in the USA. Frederick Douglass was a brilliant writer, bringing his experience as a slave to life. Maybe books like this will continue to bring revelation and clarity, and maybe a better understanding of how the spirit of the Negro slave could never be conquered. Even though slavery still has long reaching effects suffered still today, this book gives hope for all who believe in the justice of humanity.---- Reggie Rugley

Narrative of the life of Frederick Douglas. I humbly submit that this should be required reading for every American. What a beautifully written and vivid account of the horrors of enslavement and man's aptitude for both committing and enduring boundless evil.

Amazing !!!!!!!. This book is more then amazing!!!!!!!

Fredrick Dougles. This was a great read read in three hours could not put it down. Just finished 2:35 am.

Compelling. A testimony of true strength and determination in the presence of evil and injustice against humanity.

One of the best narratives I have read. Read it for yourself, not for anyone else.

Love it !!!!!!😁😁. I love this book so much and I really don’t love reading books

Fredrick zdouglass. Fantastic view of slavery. Told in a way that I have yet to read or learn in school. Appreciated his views on slavery. Great read.

What a good book!. This is an excellent narrative (especially in its original version). I recommend that every living soul read it!!!!

The Narrative Life of Fredrick Douglas. This is a must read book. It will keep you on the edge of your seat because it is such a thought provoking, up close view of slavery and the manipulative approaches utilized to support the continuous of such an egregious offense to African Americans. At times, it is a heartbreaking reality that one must place it down but the pull of wanting to get to the end will make you pick it back up. So very many psychosocial manipulative games were utilized which were designed to make the slaves believe that they were destined to remain in bondages of captivity.

Worthwhile read for any American Christian. A worthwhile read for anyone/everyone interested in an eyewitness account of slavery in the U.S. I was particularly interested in the intersection of Christianity and southern slavery, and how Douglass noted that at least on one occasion, the 'conversion' of his master made him more wicked and cruel because he used the bible to justify his wickedness whereas before he used his depravity. While I would not say that true christianity were absent from the states (northern or southern) at that time, his correct rebuke of the faux Christianity that knowingly endorsed and covered over the sin of man-stealing chattel slavery is well put. It's a good thing that religionists today are not using pious language to justify and solemnify what any objective review would show to be utterly immoral and on all points at odds with the Christ and the Scriptures.

It is ok. It tells a lot of what happened in his life then about him himself

I finally read this. In this short book, Frederick Douglass has made it possible to see slavery from the slave’s perspective. He is clear, concise, and unabashedly factual. On a persoanl note, I wish I had read this so long ago, back when I avoided reading – and this book puts my former dislike for the effort of reading to shame, as literacy was his key to freedom, and I once treated it like a waste of time.
