What I’m Reading: Life and Times of Frederick Douglass – 53 in a series – “I had no proper idea of the wealth, refinement, enterprise, and high civilization…”

September 24th, 2019

“The reader may be surprised, that living in Baltimore as I had done for many years, when I tell the honest truth of the impressions I had in some way conceived of the social and material condition of the people at the north. I had no proper idea of the wealth, refinement, enterprise, and high civilization of this section of the country.”

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

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