Description: Born a slave,Frederick Douglaseducated himself, escaped, and became one of the greatest social leaders in American history. Although usually identified with the monumentalNarrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave, Douglass produced two additional autobiographies, the second of which he calledMy Bondage and My Freedom. A richer, deeper, and far more ambiguous work than the earlierNarrative,My Bondage and My Freedomreveals Douglass’s increased intellectual sophistication and maturity. In the decade that had elapsed since Douglass wroteNarrative, he had broken away from his antislavery mentors, successfully toured England, and established himself as an inspired speaker and writer. With the publication ofMy Bondage and My Freedomin 1855, Douglass became the country’s foremost spokesman for American blacks—free and enslaved—during the tense and politically charged years preceding the Civil War. One of the highlights ofMy Bondage and My Freedomis the appendix, which contains excerpts from several of Douglass’s speeches, including perhaps his most famous, “What to the Slave Is the Fourth of July?”
