    Frederick Douglass should be on the required reading list of every American No matter your political affiliation, no matter if your Geo locale is north or south of the Mason Dixon Line, there is something to be learned and taken away from his My Bondage My Freedom by all This particular memoir I personally found just as enthralling as educating There are explanations to things people are still fighting about and struggling with today, and there are insights into things most can only vainly Frederick Douglass should be on the required reading list of every American No matter your political affiliation, no matter if your Geo locale is north or south of the Mason Dixon Line, there is something to be learned and taken away from his My Bondage My Freedom by all This particular memoir I personally found just as enthralling as educating There are explanations to things people are still fighting about and struggling with today, and there are insights into things most can only vainly attempt to imagine having no first hand knowledge of the horror of chattel slavery and the system that maintained it in the so called land of the free.The thoughts and ideas so eloquently put forth by Douglass in his speeches resonate with liberty at its core beyond the figurative shackles of past or present ideologies, color and or creed Religion in the form of Christianity is quite often remembered during this period as biblical justification of slavery, just as well it s quite often invoked by Douglass as the higher authority of universal ordinance which precedes and therefore renders the corruptions of earthly law invalid see U.S Supreme Court ruling The Dred Scott Decision 1857 For this too I recommend it to all Christians interested in the history of American evangelism which saw no small schism in that one side upheld the institution of oppression, while the other rallied to decry it as an abomination, and in direct opposition to the mercy of an Almighty God within the movement of abolition.In conclusion and summary which follows The Portable Frederick Douglass on Kindle is an excellent annotated selection of his most influential writings and speeches with an Introduction by Henry Louis Gates and John Stauffer, along with suggestions for further reading This collection of his work contains the following About the AuthorWhat Is an African American Classic IntroductionA Note on the TextAutobiographical Writings Narrative Of The Life Of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave 1845 From My Bondage And My Freedom 1855 From Life And times of Frederick Douglass 1881 Fiction The Heroic Slave 1853 Speeches What To The Slave Is The Fourth Of July 1852 The Claims Of The Negro Ethnologically Considered 1854 The Dred Scott Decision 1857 The Significance Of Emancipation In West Indies 1857 The Trials And Triumphs Of Self Made Men 1860 The Day Of Jubilee Comes 1862 The Proclamation And A Negro Army 1863 The Mission Of The War 1864 Pictures And Progress 1864 65 Our Martyred President 1865 The Freedmen s Monument To Abraham Lincoln 1876 Lessons Of The Hour 1894 Journalism To My Old Master 1848 Prejudice Against Color 1850 F.D 1851 The Word White 1854 Is It Right And Wise To Kill A Kidnapper 1854 Our Plan For Making Kansas A Free State 1854 The Doom Of The Black Power 1855 Capt John Brown Not Insane 1859 To The Rochester Democrat And American 1859 The Chicago Nominations 1960 The Inaugural Address 1861 A Trip To Haiti 1861 The Fall Of Sumter 1861 Fremont And His Proclamation 1861 The President And His Speeches 1862 Men Of Color, To Arms 1863 Valedictory 1863 Woman Suffrage Movement 1870 Letter From The Editor On The Burning Down Of His Rochester House 1872 Give Us The Freedom Intended For Us 1872 The Color Line 1881 The Future Of The Colored Race 1886 Introduction To The Reason Why The Colored American Is Not The World s Columbian Toussaint L Ouverture CA 1891 Appendix On Genealogical Self FashioningNotes

    I m glad Frederick Douglass is finally getting recognizedandthese days But in all seriousness, this man was an impressive thinker I hesitate to say ahead of his time, because he was molded by his time But his views on race and on women s struggles for equality are fascinating and refreshing They sound like 20th century tracts, not early to mid 19th c This collection has the Narrative and selections from the other two autobiographies, many of the speeches, and many pieces of journ I m glad Frederick Douglass is finally getting recognizedandthese days But in all seriousness, this man was an impressive thinker I hesitate to say ahead of his time, because he was molded by his time But his views on race and on women s struggles for equality are fascinating and refreshing They sound like 20th century tracts, not early to mid 19th c This collection has the Narrative and selections from the other two autobiographies, many of the speeches, and many pieces of journalism The range goes from aesthetics in photography to holidays being the opiate of the worker Douglass s argument on holidays is the closest I ve ever seen to my own to throwing shade at A Lincoln.Certainly he was an engaging thinker and I can only imagine he was a brilliant orator I m glad to have dived deeper into his work
