Speaking With Frederick Douglass
-Believe in yourself-
Frederick Douglass speaks to you....
"I took advantage of the knowledge of the alphabet Miss Sophia gave me and I went to my neighborhood friends, and with their help I learned how to read."
-Take advantage of every opportunity-
"Learning the alphabet gave me the key to reading; I took that key and, with a little help from my friends, learned how to read, thus becoming a free man in my mind."
-Use the power of language to effect permanent positive change-
"Through my many speeches about justice, and through my newspaper and other writings, I discovered that the power of the word is the best means to bring about permanent positive changes, both for myself and others."
