Moses. Readers who enjoy finely written history and biography are those most likely to enjoy the terrific book by David W. Blight titled, Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom. Blight brings all of Douglass to these pages: the man and the myth. The prophet Moses and the prophet Jeremiah. The slave and the freeman. The patriot and the critic. Whether you know a little or a lot about the life of the great Frederick Douglass, you’re likely to learn new things from this book, thanks to private sources that Blight used to inform his writing.
Rating: Five-star (I love it)
