Description:

This paper will discuss the book "The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglas", and seek out why it was valid, and why the language he used was very credible in his day. He not only knew that the Bible, in many of the religious references in the book, would appeal to white educated elites, but also saw that the religious doctrines of Christianity would break down race barriers in this aspect. All of these elements will show how Douglas was an accomplished writer, and used the best language of his day- that of the Bible-to show that blacks were intelligent, and not beneath whites in any way. The thesis of this narrative is that of religion, and how Douglas uses this to prove racial equality.
