Mrs. Auld began Douglass' education when he joined them at their home. She had previously been a weaver and had never owned slaves. Thus, she was initially kind and generous with her time.... at least until her husband forbid her from teaching Douglass his letters. Once he'd been exposed to a sense of literacy, Douglass was determined to learn to read and write. He did this by befriending poor white children, who taught them what they knew while he was supposedly out running errands. Once he became literate.... Douglass was esentially self-taught.
