The words of Frederick Douglass / Emmett Martin.

Martin, Emmett, (author.).


"Frederick Douglass is one of the most admired Americans. After a daring escape from a life of enslavement, he became a famous abolitionist as well as a supporter of women's rights. He also founded a newspaper and forged a friendship with Abraham Lincoln. This valuable biography uses Douglass's own prolific writings-including his three autobiographies!-to describe the key events of his life and the times in which he lived. Historical photographs, sidebars, and fact boxes add even more relevant information about the era, an important period in the elementary social studies curriculum"-- Provided by publisher.
