I love Frederick Douglass' activism, speeches, and courage. For those things, he will always be an icon. But reading this book makes you feel for the women in his life and then Douglass doesn't look so grand. I understand falling in love when you weren't planning to but then asking your wife to let your mistress live in your house for a few months each year for over a decade is the epitome of male arrogance. This book is absorbing and worth reading.
