THE UNITED STATES: 1492­1865 HISF315K Frederick Douglass Essay Due: March 30, 2016 (in class) Length: 2000 words This assignment is an essay on Frederick Douglass’ Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An  American Slave.  Your work should be based on your reading of the book and your own analysis of it.    Do not do additional research or use reviews or summaries written by other people.  Douglass’ account describes his life as a slave and his struggle for freedom.  It is a moving and  powerful indictment of slavery.  It is also a valuable source for historians hoping to understand the  everyday life of a slave.  In no small part because of this memoir, Douglass became an internationally  famous abolitionist. Prompt: Douglass illustrates the dehumanizing nature of slavery on those touched by the terrible institution.  Simultaneously, however, his moving prose humanizes Douglass—and by extension —all African Americans. In your essay, analyze the most compelling arguments Douglass makes about the dehumanizing aspects of slavery and how his use of language works to humanize the author and African Americans in  general. As you’re reading, you might consider questions such as:  How does Douglass represent himself and his motivations?    What effects does slavery have upon those involved, both slave and owner?  What role do the references to the Founding Fathers play? Tip: It is very important that you do not merely describe Douglass’ life story.  You are being asked to analyze his argument and the language he employs.  Therefore, as you read and prepare your outline,  you need to focus on what and how Douglass argues. Format for Essay  Essays must be typed, double­spaced, 12 point font, Times New Roman, 1­inch margins, page­ numbered, stapled, and spell­checked.  Do not justify your margins and use only one side of the  paper, please.  You must footnote your essay using the Chicago Manual of Style.   Submission Page 1 of 2  Hard copies only.  Your assignment is not considered submitted until you hand in a hard copy!  Assignments are due in class.  Late penalty is 5% per calendar day, including weekends.
