Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

- - is a blank city. There's a sick glow to the clouds, and it always seems to be raining here even when it isn't. Only sad and wounded people live here anymore. They are homeless in their apartments. They are unemployed at their jobs. They are widows in their marriage beds and celibates in amours and loners with many friends because - - is a sad city, full of sad and lonely people. I can't say very much about myself now, only that we have known each other before and for a very short, very slight while. We had a class together and I grew up down the block and our mothers say hello still from time to time in the aisles of a grocery store somewhere north of Tampa. Somewhere deep in Maryland. Somewhere down in Solano County. Somewhere out where the winds never seem to change and the days tick by like cars on a beltway. Things have not worked out for me in life as they may have for you. I have seen your visions of this world flickering on the outsides of my eyelids for a very long time and now and for many other reasons, I cannot stand to see them anymore.

   How could they!!
The horrors of slavery should be understood by everyone. The writing and insight into the horrible people who believed they were justified to take part in this practice shows that this man was a genius. The owner was more religious and mean. In Uncle Tom's Cabin, I read this as well. Shame on people who were justified in their actions. I don't agree with the idea of burying history because it isn't liked. This happens to teach the ages. The Holocaust is a horror up there.

   Disappointed
The size of the font is very small. Not much thought was given to the formating of the book. The page margins are not professional. It is so disappointing.

   Should Be Included High School Curriculums
Through the lens of Frederick Douglass there is a profound look at slavery. He faced physical and psychological dangers while enduring bondage. He describes how he grew from an ignorant slave to a thoughtful slave and how it opened his eyes to the idea of liberty. What motivates people to seek knowledge and understand? Getting to know the world helps us understand our reality and motivation to strive for improvement. The critique of Slave owning Christians is so well produced that it is included as a bonus. A great American classic.

   EXCELLENT read. Now I am on to the later
I have never read a book like this before. I now live in Frederick Douglas country, close to where he was born. This book gave me an even greater appreciation for all he had to endure, for all he overcame and lived through, and for what he became! An inspiring story that helps us appreciate the life he lived and the impact he has had on millions of people! The read was excellent. The later, longer version of his writings is what I will be studying.
