    The remark is not unfrequently made, that slaves are the most contented and happy labourers in the world They dance and sing, and make all manner of joyful noises so they do but it is a great mistake to suppose them happy because they sing The songs of the slave represent the sorrows, rather than the joys, of his heart and he is relieved by them, only as an aching heart is

    This is a great book, by a great American Skeptics looking at that statement might think, well sure you think that reading his own account Except I ve found autobiographies unintentionally revealing in fascinating ways Within the last year I read autobiographies and memoirs by Ghandi, Dian Fossey and Booker T Washington The first book lessened my admiration and liking, the seco

    Remarkable, of course Eloquent, and a bit wordy in 19th century style, but Douglass needed to prove that a Black man could match the rhetoric of his white peers.I was most interested in Douglass s comments on the expropriation of the product of labor In skimming a couple of internet pieces on the availability of Marx s writing in America, it appears Greeley published some of his wri

    My Bondage and My Freedom reads like the best of historical fiction Douglass story is full of lively characters even the minor figures are vividly drawn The descriptions transport us instantly to a particular place and moment in time For the first eight years of his life Douglass was raised by his grandmother who had charge of the young slave children They all shared a cabin with a veget

    I experienced this book as a combination of audible.com as well as an e book The e book went beyond the audible book in that it included a number of speeches that Douglas gave in the 1850s that were alluded to in the book This is the second of several autobiographies that Douglas wrote in his lifetime This book is a significant expansion of the first autobiography which was relatively short Although it reco

    Our house stood within a few rods of the Chesapeake Bay, whose broad bosom was ever white with sails from every quarter of the habitable globe Those beautiful vessels, robed in purest white, so delightful to the eye of freemen, were to me so many shrouded ghosts, to terrify and torment me with thoughts of my wretched condition I have often, in the deep stillness of a summer s Sabbath, stood all alone upon the lofty b
