Fredrick Douglass Portfolio Questions
Answer these questions in your Course Portfolio as you read and study this work.
- Douglass’s first three paragraphs, on his age and his parents, introduce immediately the theme of identity and the way the slave system operates to deny slaves an identity. Explain.
