Young Frederick Douglass : the Maryland years

Image of item
Drawing on previously untapped sources, this book recreates in detail the background and early life of Frederick Douglass, "the gadfly of America's conscience", and the undisputed spokesman for nineteenth-century black Americans. This highly regarded biography traces his life and times from his birth on Maryland's Eastern Shore in 1818 until 1838, when he escaped from slavery to emerge upon the national scene. At the time of Douglass' death in 1895, one eulogist wrote that Douglass was probably the best-known American throughout the world since Abraham Lincoln."--Publisher description.
