What I’m Reading: Life and Times of Frederick Douglass – 75 in a series – “because God is not dead slavery can only end in blood.”

October 24th, 2019

“Speaking at an anti-slavery convention in Salem, Ohio, I expressed this apprehension that slavery could only be destroyed by blood-shed, when I was suddenly and sharply interrupted by my good old friend Sojourner Truth with the question, “Frederick, is God dead?” “No.” I answered, and “because God is not dead slavery can only end in blood.””

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

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