What I’m Reading: Life and Times of Frederick Douglass – 6 in a series – Old and young, male and female, married and single, dropped down upon the common clay floor

July 28th, 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 sleeping apartments, if they could have been properly called such, had little regard to comfort or decency. Old and young, male and female, married and single, dropped down upon the common clay floor, each covering up with his or her blanket, their only protection from cold or exposure. The night, however, was shortened at both ends.”

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