What I’m Reading: Life and Times of Frederick Douglass – 46 in a series – “…to get out of it by the shortest route.”

September 9th, 2019 Leave a comment Go to comments

“The reader already knows enough of the ill effects of good treatment on a slave to anticipate what was now the case in my improved condition. It was not long before I began to show signs of disquiet with slavery, and to look around for means to get out of it by the shortest route.”

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

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