What I’m Reading: Life and Times of Frederick Douglass – 73 in a series – ”I found it hard to get credit in some quarters either for what I wrote or what I said.”

October 22nd, 2019

”I found it hard to get credit in some quarters either for what I wrote or what I said. While there was nothing very profound or learned in either, the low estimate of Negro possibilities induced the belief that both my editorials and my speeches were written by white persons.”

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

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