US history is tainted by the most shameful form of enslavement of man by man – Negro slavery, that existed until 1863.
Most people of America, negros and white, heroically fought for the abolition of slavery and for equal rights for black-skinned people.
A place of honor in their ranks belongs to Frederick Douglass, who has been a recognized leader of the Negro people of the United States for decades.
Frederick Douglass is one of the most famous and influential African American leaders of the 19th century.
The book became famous, but freedom of the author was subjected to danger – according to the law, he had to go back to his host, to the South.
Douglas chose to go to Europe, he lectured in the UK and Ireland during 1845-1847 years (“Frederick Douglass Biography”, n.d.).
He played a leading role in the organization of the Negro National League of struggle for equality (“Frederick Douglass Biography”, n.d.).
Frederick Douglas has developed a program of political and civil rights for the black population of the country, especially the right to elect and be elected along with white Americans, and consistently fought for its implementation after the abolition of slavery.
