Born a slave, Frederick Douglass (1818–1895) led an astounding life. After escaping to the North, he became a leading abolitionist orator and writer and played a major role in turning the Civil War into a revolutionary struggle to destroy slavery.

In this first and most frequently read of his three autobiographies, Douglass provides graphic descriptions of the tragedy of his childhood, the physical abuse and horrifying experiences suffered as a slave, his burning desire to learn to read and teach other slaves, his dramatic escape to the North, and his eventual freedom.

Published in 1845 to quell doubts about his origins — since few slaves of that period could write — the Narrative is admired today for its extraordinary passion, sensitive and vivid descriptions and storytelling power.
