Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass

Former slave, impassioned abolitionist, brilliant writer, newspaper editor and eloquent orator whose speeches fired the abolitionist cause, Frederick Douglass (1818–1895) led an astounding life. Physical abuse, deprivation and tragedy plagued his early years, yet through sheer force of character he was able to overcome these obstacles to become a leading spokesman for his people. In this, the first and most frequently read of his three autobiographies, Douglass provides graphic descriptions of his childhood and horrifying experiences as a slave as well as a harrowing record of his dramatic escape to the North and eventual freedom. Published in 1845 to quell doubts about his origins β€” since few slaves of that period could write β€” the Narrative is admired today for its extraordinary passion, sensitive and vivid descriptions and storytelling power. It belongs in the library of anyone interested in African-American history and the life of one of the country’s most courageous and influential champions of civil rights. A selection of the Common Core State Standards Initiative.

Why do you think Trump was consistently referred to as a “dictator” or “tyrant” etc by the media and others  throughout his presidency ? Despite having not taken the United States to war like many of his predecessors? πŸ€” 

Do you think that much of it had to do with how “tactlessly” he conducted himself or do you think that he was often targeted because he was simply nothing like all of the others, thus garnering him hate along the way ? 

Does it matter that he didn’t take the USA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ to war or are all or the vast majority of the wars that we engage in necessary and warranted ?πŸ‘‡Feel free to reply below πŸ‘‡All comments are welcome πŸ‘‡
