Douglass was a remarkable man. It was inspiring to read his narrative about how taught himself to read and write, about his passage from childhood and ignorance to adulthood and self-realization, about his foiled escape attempt, and his final successful escape attempt. He was a patient, industrious, intelligent, impassioned, caring, and spiritual. He wrote that he derived great pleasure from communion with his enslaved brethren, and loved teaching them how to read and write. He was a deeply religious man but criticized the hypocritical Christianity of slaveholders.
