The life and times of Frederick Douglass

Douglass’ book is a searing indictment of slavery. His entire autobiography is rife with the agony and cruelty inherent in the system of slavery.

No filial bonds exist among slaves, as was the case with Douglass and his brothers and sisters, each of whom belonged to different masters.
