Frederick Douglass Prophet of Freedom
In this remarkable new biography of great American orator and abolitionist Frederick Douglass, historian David Blight has drawn on new information from both a private collection and recently discovered issues of Douglasss newspapers. The first major biography of Douglass in a quarter century tells the fascinating story of Douglasss two marriages, his complex extended family, and his fierce support of the Republican party and black civil and political rights. An eloquent man and a thinker steeped in Biblical story and theology, Douglass became the most famed and widely traveled American orator of his time.
