My Bondage and My Freedom, Frederick Douglass

The influential abolitionist’s first autobiography, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave, was later revised and updated 10 years later in his second memoir, My Bondage and My Freedom. In it, he writes about the brutal life as a slave and his quest for freedom and literacy. (Photo: Bottom of the Hill Publishing)
