  A Brief Recapitulation of the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass   The book Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass was a ground breaking depiction of the life of a former slave. The author, Frederick Douglass, overcame unbelievable odds in his quest for knowledge and freedom. At the time of its release in 1845, America’s segregated society had never heard the portrayal of life as an American slave. It was unfathomable that a slave could even read or write and yet here lie the beauty and prose of Douglass’s inaugural magnum opus.

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to  justice  everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.
