  • "Frederick Douglass was born into slavery in Maryland in 1818. His father, whom he never knew, was white. He hardly knew his Negro mother, for it was common practice in the slave states to separate children from their parents. Douglass knew his grandparents better, for he lived with them in his early years, and the harshness of his life was made more endurable by the tender love of his grandmother. When he was about seven, Douglass was taken from his grandmother's cabin. He was sold numerous times in the slave markets of the South. Remarkably, however, he was able to secretly teach himself to read and write--a crime punishable by death--and thus was able to pass on to us this fascinating and eloquent indictment of America's pre-Civil War record of cruelty, ignorance, and callousness in its most heinous of institutions."@en
