Mrs Auld teaching Frederick Douglass the a-b-c's
Frederick Douglass hiding his book from his slave master
Frederick Douglass wishing he was dead
When Douglass started to live with Mrs Auld, Mrs Auld offered Douglass to learn about the a-b-c's. Douglass said "she very kindly commenced to teach me the a-b-c".
When Douglass was a slave every slave owner wanted their slaves to be ignorant and have no knowledge of anything. Douglass (when no one was around) would sneakily read his book and when his slave owner came to check on him he would then hide it.
After Douglass knowing his a-b-c's and also knowing how to read, he felt like it was more of a curse than a blessing. He started working more for slave owners and from his own words he said "i often found myself regretting my own existence, and wishing myself dead"
