Frederick Douglass Instagram  

“I have no accurate knowledge of my age, never having seen any authentic record containing it." ( Frederick Douglass 20)

“ I was born in Tuckahoe, near Hillsborough, and about twelve miles from Easton, in Talbot county, Maryland.” ( Frederick Douglass 20)

“He would at times seem to take great pleasure in whipping a slave. I have often been awakened at the dawn of day by the most heart-rending shrieks of an own aunt of mine, whom he used to tie up to a joist, and whip upon her naked back till she was literally covered with blood. No words, no tears, no prayers, from his gory victim, seemed to move his iron heart from its bloody purpose” ( Frederick Douglass 23)
