The Powers of Dignity

The Black Political Philosophy of Frederick Douglass

The Powers of Dignity

Book Pages: 248 Illustrations: Published: February 2021

Author: Nick Bromell


“Nick Bromell writes beautifully, and he has an illuminating story to tell about Frederick Douglass's political imagination from the 1840s to the 1890s. As Bromell shows, Douglass's political thinking about race and democracy was constantly in flux, mediated by his experience in slavery and his commitment to the black freedom struggle. This is an exemplary contribution to our understanding of one of the most important figures in American history.” — Robert S. Levine, author of The Lives of Frederick Douglass
