This is Frederick Douglass. He is a pretty big deal.

  • Questions, comments, concerns?
  • Section 250: AAMMJ will be leading discussion!
  • A Memorable Speech: What is his argument?
    • Let's read along!
    • What reasons does Douglass offer to make the case that the Fourth of July is not meant for the American slave?
    • What evidence does he provide that this is in fact is the case?
    • How/where does he use ethos, pathos and logos?
  • What about William Lloyd Garrison? Who was he? Why does his perspective matter?
  • Selections from CV - A Writing Exercise
    • So, how does Douglass and Garrison's perspective on slavery help shape our understanding about the abolitionists point of view?
