This is a glowing biography of an American hero. Concise and comprehensive, Charles Chestnutt "touts" Mr. Douglass' accomplishments that he either, he himself did not write about nor achieve prior to his autobiography.

Frederick Douglass did not back down, was a man beyond reproach and stayed his ground. By virtue of his character, he lent untold and immeasurable benefit to "his people" when those kept in bondage were the standard-bearer of Black inability. ( )
