Published seven years after his escape from slavery, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave (1845) is a powerful account of the cruelty and oppression of the Maryland plantation culture into which Frederick Douglass was born. It brought him to the forefront of the anti-slavery movement and drew thousands, black and white, to the cause. The book made Douglass a brilliantly effective spokesman for abolition and equal rights, as he shapes an inspiring vision of self-realisation in the face of unimaginable odds.

When studying slavery in American History, students are often exposed to the arguments of Abolitionists and the defense of the peculiar institution by Southerners. The narrative by Frederick Douglass gives a voice to the slaves. The book is 124 pages long and very quick to read. You can also download this book from the internet, for free, at Project Gutenberg. The difference is that this version has a ten-page introduction by Peter Gomes.
