Summary
From his birth into slavery to his escape and rise as a public speaker, abolitionist, and the most photographed man of the nineteenth century, Frederick Douglass has a uniquely American life story, part tragedy and part triumph. His writings, including the classic Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, and his speeches inspired people to take action against the evils of slavery in the United States, and his words continue to resonate in today's tumultuous political and cultural climates. Now this comic book-style biography brings those word and Douglass's story to visual life. Along the way, you'll experience iconic historical figures like Harriet Tubman, John Brown, Susan B. Antony, and Abraham Lincoln through the eyes of Frederick Douglass himself. Lessons on American slavery, the rise of photography, and a history of the Civil War round out this essential guide to a man whose achievements continue to inspire
