Born into slavery in Maryland in 1818, Frederick Douglass was determined to gain freedom - and once he realized that knowledge was power, he secretly learned to read and write to give himself an advantage. After escaping to the North in 1838, as a free man he gave powerful speeches about his experience as a slave.

Estate planning lawyer and mom to two boys. My older son liked audiobooks as an infant, and I've listened to a lot since then.
This has been a favorite series for my sons, especially before bed, and my 14 year old still loves them. This was one of his favorites since he found Douglass' life especially interesting. He enjoyed the narration and the writing style as well.
