THE LIFE OF FREDERICK DOUGLASSA graphic novel–style biography based on Douglass's own writings


A Graphic Narrative of a Slave's Journey from Bondage to Freedom

By David F. Walker. Illustrated by Damon Smyth and Marissa Louise. Based on Douglass's autobiographical writings and speeches, this graphic novel–style biography takes readers from his life as a young slave, through his forbidden education, to his escape and rise to prominence as an orator and leader of the abolitionist movement. Told from Douglass's own point of view, the story not only recounts the key events of his life but also furnishes additional information on the history of slavery in the United States, the development of photography (which would play a key role in the spread of his image and influence), and the Civil War. Grades 8 and up. Ten Speed Press. 192 pages. ©2019.
