The power of Education

This is a story of a boy whose mother is a slave. He is separated from her when he is only a few weeks old. After that his grandmother takes care of him. When he is six, his grandmother takes him. To the plantation to work and leaves him there intentionally.

He never recovers from this betrayal of abandonment. Later on, he is sent to work for a ship carpentry by his master. Despite a ban on teaching slaves, the carpenter’s wife start teaching him the English alphabet. But soon, her husband finds out. 

And forces her to stop teaching him, determined to read and write. He continues to learn from neighborhood white boys. By giving away his food in exchange for lessons. As his knowledge and vocabulary grow, he begins to read newspaper political books.

 The more he reads, the more aware he becomes of the social injustice against him. One day he buys a copy of the Columbian Orator. A popular schoolbook, which helps him to understand the power of spoken and written words. 

He learns that educating his people, is the key to fight against social injustice. So, he starts holding church service to teach other slaves how to read and write. His weekly services grow in popularity with over 40 slaves attending.

But soon angry slave owners shut down his class. He gets sold to a new master; his new master is a monster in form of a human being. He enjoys whipping his slaves who won’t follow orders. Our hero endures this brutal whipping for about six months.

Until he can not take it anymore and one day he fights back. The fight between him and the brutal master last for two hours and eventually the master surrenders. On that day restores his sense of self-worth.  And he vows to never let anyone beat him again.

At the age of 20, after two unsuccessful attempts, he finally escapes from slavery. By impersonating a sailor, and flees to the north. To Continue fighting against injustice against his people, he decides to spread his knowledge and wisdom. Whenever and wherever he can he attends abolitionist meetings.

In 1841, after attending an abolitionist convention, he takes the opportunity to become a lecturer for the Massachusetts anti- slavery society. This leads him to public speaking and writing. Soon, he starts writing and publishing books on slavery. 

And founds an antislavery newspaper titled, ‘The NorthStar’. A lot of white people aren’t and don’t want let him do these things. And one day, while participating in a lecturing tour, he is chased and beaten by an angry mob before being rescued by a local family.

Soon, Frederick Douglass recognized internationally as a human’s rights leader fighting against. The slavery system and standing in for women’s rights. 

This Race Called Life - Dare to do motivational story 

He goes on to become a trusted adviser of president Lincoln. He advices the president on the treatment of black soldiers and urges him to give all black men and women the right to vote. In 1863, president Lincoln declares the freedom of all slaves.

Douglas becomes the first African-American citizen to hold a high us government rank. He is also the first black person to receive a vice presidential nomination. Although he did not campaign for the office. He keeps on inspiring people to use the power of education to effect positive change in themselves and society. His words will inspire future presidents.

And also inspire those who will fight for justice after him. Frederick’s journey teaches us to never give up in the face of adversity. Frederick Douglass once famously said, if there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crop without plowing up the ground.

They want rain without thunder and lighting. They want the ocean without the awful roars of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral life; or it may be both moral and physical; But it must be a struggle.
