What I’m Reading: Life and Times of Frederick Douglass – 14 in a series – ”Knowledge unfits a child to be a slave.”

”Knowledge unfits a child to be a slave.” I instinctively assented to the proposition, and from that moment I understood the direct pathway from slavery to freedom.”

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

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