What’s up Fred?

Born a slave in 1818 on a plantation in Maryland, Douglas taught himself to read and write. In 1845, seven years after escaping ti the north, he published Narrative, the first if three autobiographies.

In this narrative Douglas calmly but dramatically recounts the horrors and accomplishments of his early years. An astonishing orator and a skillful writer Douglas became a newspaper editor; a political activist, and a an eloquent spokesperson for the civil rights of African Americans.

He was celebrated internationally as the leading black intellectual of his time, and his story still resonated today! Now that’s what’s up! Thanks Fred looking forward to reading your books sir.
