Narrator Corey Allen's voice is soft but strong as he delivers this biography of Frederick Douglass, whose fortitude changed the history of America. Born a slave, Douglass discovered reading early in life and recognized its importance in learning and in making one "unfit to be a slave." Allen's precise enunciation emphasizes the theme of this work--the power of words and courage. Throughout the early period of Douglass's life, Allen depicts his intelligence and fearlessness in overcoming a slave breaker and escaping to freedom. Allen gracefully integrates direct quotations, facts, and emotions in this short biography. His voice seems to gain power as he recounts how Douglass used his freedom and eloquence to stir audiences to fight for equality for both people of color and women.
