Bald Cypress Books reprints classic Frederick Douglass autobiography

After releasing a new edition of Scenes in the Life of Harriet Tubman last week, Bald Cypress Books continues to celebrate Black History Month with the release of Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, the classic autobiography of the great African-American statesman, originally published in 1845.
