From Courage to Freedom: Frederick Douglass's 1845 Autobiography

Collector: Ann V.

Frederick Douglass's autobiography, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave, Written by Himself, is the anchor text in a four-lesson unit module. High schoolers analyze how Douglass uses literary devices and rhetorical appeals to present a realistic picture of slavery. Young historians examine Douglass' refutation of arguments using Christianity to uphold slavery, analyze how Douglass contrasts instances of the reality of slavery with romanticized myths, and explore Douglass' argument that slavery dehumanizes all involved.
