What I’m Reading: The songs of the slaves represented their sorrows

July 27th, 2019

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


Why I'm Reading: He was whipped oftener who was whipped easiest.

“The songs of the slaves represented their sorrows, rather than their joys. Like tears, they were a relief to aching hearts.”

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