For Thursday, October 2


Some things you’ll want to finish up before our next class meeting on Thursday, October 2:

1)  Read the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass.  You can find the link to the text on our syllabus or click here.

2) Compose a blog post that explains the following quote from Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass: ” . . . and I now resolved that, however long I might remain a slave in form, the day had passed forever when I could be a slave in fact.”  Think about the key terms in the quote and the key distinction that Douglass is making.  To what extent do you see this distinction in the rest of the Narrative?  Where? In what different forms?  Try to finish blogging by noon on Thursday, October 2.

3)  Browse through our Contributors list (e.g. our blogroll) and comment on at least two posts by your fellow classmates.
