Publisher's Summary

This classic of American literature, a dramatic autobiography of the early life of an American slave, was first published in 1845, when its author had just achieved his freedom. It is a story that shocked the world with its first-hand account of the horrors of slavery. The book was an incredible success. It sold over 30,000 copies and was an international best seller. His eloquence gives a clear indication of the powerful principles that led Douglas to become the first great African-American leader in the United States.

    Story
    "Appropriate Audio"

    Loved that the accent was never exaggerated and if I am not mistaken, this is one of ONLY TWO recordings of this great novel that are made in a Black man's voice. Great job.

    Story
    "Sheds Light On A Dark System"

    This book shines light on a dark system and mindset that have been perpetuated throughout the history of this nation. This is a needed publication that is as necessary, if not more necessary, now than it has always been.
