    From slave to freedom fighter: that was the long and hard journey taken by Frederick Douglass. Douglass was America's first great civil rights leader, and he threw off the physical, mental, and legal chains of slavery to become one of Americaï¿¿ï¿¿s greatest champions for human rights. It was said that his life was proof that once black people could read and write about their injustices, they would have the power to end slavery.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Sterling Biographies to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read any of them. Only heard this one as I listened to it last week.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sterling Biographies?

    How much I didn't know about Frederick Douglass and learned from this audio!


    Did Cornelius Jones do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, he did.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Given that it's for students, it was compact and easy to understand all in just a few days of listening.


    Any additional comments?

    Cornelius could pick up the pace for us grownups. Even high school history students would appreciate a more adult version. Are the Sterling biographies geared to elementary school students to help them appreciate history? If so, bravo!
