Douglass, an enslaved citizen from Maryland who escaped slavery and later became a leading voice in the anti-slavery movement, wrote three autobiographies in his lifetime: “Narrative of the Live of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave (first published in 1845),” “My Bondage and My Freedom (1855),” and “Life and Times of Frederick Douglass (1881).” PUL’s goal, according to history and African American studies librarian Steve Knowlton, is to eventually own copies of each of the early editions produced in Douglass’s lifetime.Posted on Friday, 28 February 2020 - 11:46am in Special Collections
