    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.

    Marsha says: "Great if you're 9 years old"
    "A Very Interesting Overview of Douglass's Life"

    If you could sum up Sterling Biographies in three words, what would they be?

    Informative, captivating, interesting


    What did you like best about this story?

    This story gave a very captivating look into Fredrick Douglass's life from his birth to his death and was presented in an orderly, logic fashion. I learned a lot more than I learned in school about this important figure in American history listening to this audio-book. The story-telling was what kept me interested and hungry for more after I finished it.


    What about Cornelius Jones’s performance did you like?

    He seemed to have a passion for telling this great man's story and did a good job with pacing the events as they unfolded.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Sometimes his voice seemed different, like it had been recorded after the original recording and then spliced back in.


    Any additional comments?

    I would have liked for there to have been more music and/or sound effects in certain places.
