Fredrick Douglas was born to a slave mother who died when he was seven and his original master, who he suspected to be his father. At a young age he witnessed and suffered tremendous physical violence and other forms of inhumane treatment at the hands of his many owners. When he learns the meaning of abolition, the seeds of escape were planted firmly in his heart. Shuffled from one owner to the next, Fredrick acquired an intense wish to read and write enough to write his own pass, to aid in his eventual escape Fredrick Douglass escaped and became a well known, abolitionist, writer and orator who worked tirelessly in the fight against slavery. His autobiography is educational, hopeful, and a must read for everyone.
