What I’m Reading: Life and Times of Frederick Douglass – 61 in a series – “…Rhode Island, I do not forget that I suffered much rough usage within her borders.”

October 4th, 2019

”While thus remembering the noble anti-slavery men and women of Rhode Island, I do not forget that I suffered much rough usage within her borders. It was like all the northern States at that time, under the influence of slave power, and often showed a proscription and persecuting spirit, especially upon its railways, steamboats, and public houses.”

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

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