What I’m Reading: Life and Times of Frederick Douglass – 7 in a series – …servility, dejection, and misery on the other.

July 29th, 2019

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

”The contrast between the condition of the slaves and that of their masters was marvelously sharp and striking. There were pride, pomp, and luxury on the one hand, servility, dejection, and misery on the other.”

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