Word Count: 341 The “Frederick Douglass Biography” film we watched this week was a powerful clip about Frederick Douglass a proactive abolitionist who dedicated his life to not only freeing himself but working towards freedom for all blacks in America. He was born into slavery, taken from his family by the age of 7 to work at a white plantation in the South, were he was forced to work and follow orders given by his owner. After experiencing the brutality of slavery, he worked and moved to free himself, developing a voice for those who still couldn’t be heard. In his late twenties, before finding freedom, he published a book about his life putting his safety in the North at stake. Frederick traveled to England and devised a plan for his friends to purchase his from his original owners in the South, finally resulting in his freedom. After returning to the states Frederick used his voice to push freedom for all, seeking equal rights and equal opportunity for all. One quote that resonated with me from the film, Frederick keyed in on black culture of slaves

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
