about

Former slave, orator, journalist, autobiographer; revolutionary on behalf of a just America, Frederick Douglass was a towering figure, at once consummately charistmatic and flawed. His "Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass" (1945) galvanized the antislavery movement and is one of the truly seminal works of African-American literature. In this masterful and compelling biography, William S. McFeely captures the many sides of Douglass - his boyhood on the Chesapeake; his self-education; his rebellion and rising expectations; his marriage, affairs, and intense friendships; his bitter defeats and trascendent courage - and recreates the high drama of a turbulent era.
McFeely has written the Pulitzer Prize-winning biography Grant, as well as other important works of history. He lives in Wellfleet, Massachusetts.
