Character Traits

Frederick Douglass was a slave who ran away from slavery to be free. I chose to write about him because i found it interesting to write about someone who was a slave and ended their life as someone very famous. Frederick Douglass became famous, he escaped slavery and started writing and making speeches to show people the horrors he went through as a slave. By that he showed everyone that black people shouldn't be treated different and should have the same freedom as everyone else has.

I think that the Character trait Frederick Douglass had was to be brave like he was. He didnt want to be a slave anymore he wanted to be free and just because he was a slave didnt stop him from doing it. He wasnt afraid of doing what he wanted because he knew that that was what he wanted and he didnt want to give that up. Frederick Douglass was being brave because even though he could have gotten caught or even killed he took that risk and overcame it. Frederick Douglass was teaching us how to be brave
