  4. Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass
Author: Frederick Douglass
Reason for Suggesting Book: This is an astonishing look at slavery in the United States and not just what it did to the slave, but what it did to the slaveowner.

This classic of American literature, a dramatic autobiography of the early life of an American slave, was first published in 1845, when its author had just achieved his freedom. Its shocking first-hand account of the horrors of slavery became an international best seller. His eloquence led Frederick Douglass to become the first great African-American leader in the United States.
