Storyboard Text

  • Frederick Douglass was a slave in the state of Maryland working tirelessly at Covey’s farm. He had no rights and no money since he was a slave. Douglass slept on the floor with one to small blanket. He barely had enough to eat and two pairs of clothes one for winter and one for summer. Covey was supposed to break Douglass by thinking he was worthless and had no chance of living a better life. Douglass used to live in Baltimore as a slave and managed to learn how to read. Douglass learning how to read gave him hope and the Aulds his previous owners realized that so they sent him to Covey. One day Douglass was working in the fields when he collapsed because of heat and exhaustion. Covey walked out of his house seeing Douglass sitting in the shade on the floor. Covey kicked him powerfully in the ribs and Douglass tried to get up but fell down again. Then Covey rudely hit Douglass in the head with a hickory stick. Douglass managed to get up and get back to work.

Douglass managed to get up and get back to work.
  • After that day Covey never whipped or forcefully touched Douglass again, also no other person ever hurt Douglass without a price to pay. Douglass eventually escaped and went north because it is illegal to own a slave in the north. When Douglass escaped he set himself in a good position with a job and family. He joined a group that was against slavery and started to try and make it illegal in the U.S. Eventually Douglass was one of the most important people in history to rid slavery because of his speeches. Frederick Douglass died on February 20th, 1895 as a hero of making slavery illegal.
