The Remarkable Life Of Frederick Douglass

This is an outstanding interview with Professor David Blight on NPR’s “Fresh Aire” program.

The episode description tells us, “Historian David Blight’s Pulitzer Prize-winning biography traced Frederick Douglass’ path from slavery to abolitionist and inspired HBO’s documentary, Frederick Douglass: In Five Speeches. ‘Seeing and hearing Douglass became, through the course of the 19th century, a kind of American wonder of the world,’ Blight says.”
