What I’m Reading: Life and Times of Frederick Douglass – 67 in a series – “I am charged with attacking American institutions, as slavery is called…”

October 14th, 2019

”In reply, Mr. O’Connell said: “I am charged with attacking American institutions, as slavery is called; I am not ashamed of this attack. My sympathy is not confined to the narrow limits of my own green Ireland; my spirit walks abroad upon sea and land, and wherever there is oppression, I hate the oppressor, and wherever the tyrant ream his head, I will deal my bolts upon it, and wherever there is sorrow and suffering, there is my spirit to succor and relieve.”

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

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