University of North Carolina Press

This chapter describes Douglass’s first years as a free man living in Massachusetts. It explains why Douglass had a difficult time remaining a member of any Christian church in the North. It also recounts Douglass’s initial exposure to the abolitionist movement and his early career as a paid abolitionist lecturer—culminating in the publication of his first autobiography in 1845, which succinctly captured his prophetic faith.

Keywords:   African American Christianity, Northern Christianity, Slavery and Religion, Race and Religion, Abolitionism and Religion, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass
