Join us for this Black History Month book club reading. Title to be discussed: Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, by Frederick Douglass. Time of meeting: Monday, February 6, 2012, at 6:30 PM. Summary: "I was born in Tuckahoe. I have no accurate knowledge of my age, never having seen any authentic record containing it. By far the larger part of the slaves know as little of their ages as horses know of theirs, and it is the wish of most masters within my knowledge to keep their slaves thus ignorant." So begins the now-classic personal account of Frederick Douglass (1818-1895), who was born into slavery in Maryland and who became, after his escape to Massachusetts in 1838, an ardent abolitionist and campaigner for women's rights.
