Description
Frederick Douglass, having escaped from slavery in 1836, attracted large audiences as an antislavery lecturer, though his white supporters worried that he neither looked nor sounded like a former slave. Lest audiences think him an imposter, William Lloyd Garrison counseled him to not sound too “learned.” Another thought it would be better if he had “a little of the plantation in his speech.” Douglass rejected such suggestions.
