Publisher's Summary

This is ex-slave Frederick Douglass' second autobiography. It was written after 10 years of reflection following his legal emancipation in 1846, and his break with his mentor, William Lloyd Garrison, catapulted Douglass into the international spotlight as the foremost spokesman for American blacks, both freed and slave.
Written during his celebrated career as a newspaper editor and speaker, My Bondage and My Freedom reveals the author of the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, written in 1845, has grown more mature, forceful, analytical, and complex, with a deepened commitment to the fight for equal rights and liberties.

How I wish I read this 10 years ago.

A must read or listen to by every freeman, colored or uncolored. This book reminds me why Mr. Orielli with Fox new was satisfied with the well fed slaves who built the White House. Sad to see the master mentality alive and well paid in today's media.
