If you've read other American intellectuals, Founding Fathers, philosophers and progressive Authors like Heller, Vonnegut and Sinclair Lewis, you will chew through this book. If you are a Student of history, philosophy, US Civil War, slavery, or African American, this book is a MUST READ book. I'd highly recommend this book to anyone with an inkling of desire to learn about the struggles of not just African Americans pre-Civil War and post-Civil War but of America and it's struggle to come to terms with slavery as a young nation.
Frederick Douglass, a Freedom Fighter, fighter for rights of all minorities, women and a truly free and fair country where all men are indeed created equal. The Kindle price made it an even sweeter read!
This work gives us a picture of what it was like to live in a land where, on one hand, people really were free and where a black man could be accepted for who he was and on the other hand, a place where, black men were held as property. Mr. Douglass does not mince words in regard to his life, but paints a picture of cruelty, and of kindness and compassion. Some of it is hard to read, from the standpoint of our world today, but it is well worth reading over and over.
