If you don't know as much about Frederick Douglass as you do about Martin Luther King, Jr., you probably should. Once a slave, he educated himself and became a writer, editor, and one of the leaders of the abolitionist movement. He expressed his thoughts in both his writing, which included three autobiographies, and his speeches.
If you want an introduction to his writings without taking on too much, this book is a good place to start. It features portions of his writing and speeches, revealing his thoughts on slavery, reconstruction, and other major issues of his day. With the bonus of having a detailed introduction, this book is an easy starting point for anyone interested in learning more about this memorable African American.
