Publisher's Summary

The Slaves, is nothing but Frederick Douglass's groundbreaking autobiography, his first book, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave, written by Himself. We have renamed the title here as The Slaves to keep the title short as well as to establish that Frederick Douglass is no longer a name of a particular slave born in the 19th-century America, but a name that represents slaves of the entire world and of all time.
Even though, we do not wish anyone to be born into slavery anymore like Frederick was, we have taken him as a symbol of all the slaves as a wish that all who are still in slavery may have the spirit of Frederick Douglass and fight their ways to the freedom and work to free other slaves to make the slavery history.

A quality production of an important book

If you are interested in what Frederick Douglass had to say about slavery, in his own words, this is a must listen narrative.

Steve Ogden has done a top-notch job with the narration, and the words are powerful and impactful. A timely listen in a troubled world.

enlightening

I am in awe of the brutality we survived. This is education that is not taught in school.
