The life of Frederick Douglass is the history of American slavery epitomized in a single human experience. He saw it all, lived it all, and overcame it all. “What he saw and lived and suffered was not too much to pay, however, for a great career. ” It is something, ” as he himself said, ” to couple one’s name with great occasions, and it was a great thing to me to be permitted to bear some humble part in this, the greatest that had come thus far to the American people.”
