Research Essay : What Effect Did Frederick Douglass Have On The Liberator Newspaper And What Contributions Did He Apply To It?

768 words - 4 pages

  The Liberator, by William Garrison, and Frederick douglass, a black slave, during the 19th century were things that had provoked the minds of America to become aware of the need to abolish slavery. Frederick Douglass had been known for his leadership in the abolishment of slavery; and The Liberator, a weekly newspaper founded by William Garrison, was known for sending this message about promoting the freedom of the enslaved blacks of America.

While his involvement with Garrison’s newspaper, he had stated "no face and form ever impressed me with such sentiments [the hatred of slavery] as did those of William Lloyd Garrison." which impressed Garrison enough to mention him in The Liberator. (Russell)
  During the 1800s, people, especially the white people of America, thought of slavery as a “positive good” because slaves depend on their slaveholders; but Frederick Douglass proved that wrong through his work called, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave and speaking out against slavery.
