What I’m Reading: Life and Times of Frederick Douglass – 59 in a series – “…they believed I had never been south of Mason and Dixon’s line.”

”At last the apprehended trouble came. People doubted if I had ever been a slave. They said I did not talk like a slave, look like a slave, nor act like a slave, and that they believed I had never been south of Mason and Dixon’s line.”

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

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