Frederick Douglass

The assignment is to read the excerpt “A Narrative” by Frederick Douglas from the “Classic American Autobiographies” edited by William L. Andrews and then write a response paper on the following topic:
Slave narratives provocatively asserted- in defiance of white racism- that black men, women, and children were human and that slavery inhumanely repressed their basic human rights. How does Douglass convey his humanity, and that of his fellow slaves, to his reading audience?
