Frederick Douglass was a slave in the 1800’s. His journey in baltimore began when his master rented him out to the Aulds. Along the way he comes across many conflicts such as Mr. Auld unleashing the anger of a wild animal, but he will also make some great teachers out of school boys.
When he arrived in Baltimore Mrs. Auld opened the door with a sunny smile embracing him its its warmth. A little boy peaked from around her skirt. This was Thomas. His assignment was to care for him. Mr. Auld joined them outside the door. His face was much more stern than the mother and sons. “Hello. You must be Fredrick! I'm Mrs. Auld and this is our son Thomas”. She spoke in a bubbly sweet voice. “Please come in!”
Frederick was not used to all the attention he was getting in the Auld's household. They gave him new clothes, unlike the linen clothes slaves got, were washed and ever so soft. They gave him breakfast, lunch, dinner, and sometimes even dessert.
Mrs. Auld didn't know that slaves weren't supposed to be educated because she had never had a slave before. She taught Fredrick how to read and write. "The clock struck midnight and Cinderella ran," read Mrs. Auld
Fredrick had greatly improved and Mrs. Auld and him went to show Mr. Auld. "Are you crazy! Slaves that can read and write, runaway," yelled Mr. Auld. Slaves aren't allowed to read and write.
