Description

This is ex-slave Frederick Douglass' second autobiography. It was written after 10 years of reflection following his legal emancipation in 1846, and his break with his mentor, William Lloyd Garrison, catapulted Douglass into the international spotlight as the foremost spokesman for American blacks, both freed and slave.

Written during his celebrated career as a newspaper editor and speaker, My Bondage and My Freedom reveals the author of the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, written in 1845, has grown more mature, forceful, analytical, and complex, with a deepened commitment to the fight for equal rights and liberties.

incomplet

La totalité du livre n'a pas été lu.Il manque 57 pages de lecture qui sont dans l'appendice.En réalité ce sont des discours célèbres classés dans l'histoire américaine et sur lesquels on ne peut passer outre. Ils illustrent le contenu du livre et justifie et explique bien le combat mené par l'auteur. Donc ce livre est incomplet et ne peut être appréhendé sans cet appendice qui comporte les éléments les plus intéressants pour faire un travail de recherche.

Monotone delivery

I really didn't care for the performance, as much as the content resonated.

It was slow, monotone, and the reader seemed unfamiliar with the content based on mispronouncing mr. severe as mr. Sever-y, which might not be as big a deal if it weren't explicitly talked about in his first autobiography.

Must read!

I find it hard to have conversations on issues regarding slavery and current issues in American when a vast majority of people have no real historical reference point. This book will be a great start to defining and understanding the true North as we all move through this racial wildernesses in America.

Mixed emotions.

While I fully enjoyed the history, it's clear that Mr. Douglass was a far more intelligent man than I am. I'd have to say that the times when I had to pay extra attention to follow were due to my personal lack of literary acuity.
I did have trouble some times picturing him because he usually lacks to mention his age in many circumstances.
I also did not like the voice of the reader. It wasn't until I was 75% through the book that his voice, delivered with lack of emotion and with constant monotone, grew own me.
All that said, it was a very well crafted novel, with history and truth of the utmost importance. Mr. Douglass is a true hero.

EXCELLENT

I found the narrator compelling and think that had Douglas himself read his book to us it would have been in the same measured tone. The appalling story needs no emotional addition to be effective.

Orator

Douglas still today represents the best voice for the African American population in America for intellectual equality, his genius rivals any and all academic scholars in his defense of the humanity of his people!

A Man Who Exemplifies Rugged Individualism

I had read Douglas's first autobiography several times, this being his later one. I always come away with the admiration of a man who discovered the true American spirit of rugged individualism and never looked back. He was going to live free and enjoy his inalienable rights, like all people should, without the imposition of another person's will on him. We can all learn what it means to be an American by reading this man's autobiographies.

Eye opener

I had heard little of Mr. Douglass in school but nothing prepared me for the quality of his intelligence, reflection and humility. The letter to the editor he wrote (included in the indroduction) reminded me of Georgia Washington's writings.

How I wish I read this 10 years ago.

A must read or listen to by every freeman, colored or uncolored. This book reminds me why Mr. Orielli with Fox new was satisfied with the well fed slaves who built the White House. Sad to see the master mentality alive and well paid in today's media.
