Mr. Covey is a poor white farmer and a slave breaker. This means he is known for braking in slaves who cause trouble. Douglass is sent to Covey. Covey brutally beats and whips slaves until they cannot speak. He tries this with Douglass but Douglass fights back. This is a turning point in the book for Douglass.
