What I’m Reading: Life and Times of Frederick Douglass – 8 in a series – The highly-favored inmates of this mansion…

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

”The highly-favored inmates of this mansion were literally arrayed in “purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day.” The table of this house groaned under the blood-bought luxuries gathered with painstaking care at home and abroad.”

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