What I’m Reading: The slaveholder, as well as the slave, was the victim of the slave system.

This new series is an ongoing collection of quotes from the books I am currently reading. — Douglas


“The slaveholder, as well as the slave, was the victim of the slave system. Under the whole heavens there could be no relation more unfavorable to the development of honorable character than that sustained by the slaveholder to the slave.”

From Life and Times of Frederick Douglass: (An African American Heritage Book)
