Yesterday (Feb. 14) was the birthday attributed to Frederick Douglass, noted anti-slavery activist.

Douglass’s major works are all in the public domain, and we highlight them here, with links to download them as ebooks and audiobooks.

 A Narrative of the Life of
Frederick Douglass,
an American Slave  (1845)

 
Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass is an 1845 memoir and treatise on abolition written by famous orator and former slave Frederick Douglass during his time in Lynn, Massachusetts. It is generally held to be the most famous of a number of narratives written by former slaves during the same period. In factual detail, the text describes the events of his life and is considered to be one of the most influential pieces of literature to fuel the abolitionist movement of the early 19th century in the United States. Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass encompasses eleven chapters that recount Douglass’s life as a slave and his ambition to become a free man.

This is an extraordinary
new biography of Martin Niemoller,
the German pastor during World War II
who stood up against the Nazis,
and who penned these famous words:

 
 

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
     Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
     Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
     Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me
