what is the significant of Douglass fight with Edward Covey?
There are also some of the questions that I was trying to find out.
1) In the same narrative story (Frederick Douglass), what is it means when Douglass stated "However long I might remain a slave inform, the day had passed forever when I could be a slave in fact?" truly means????
2) How does racism affect the victims? ( with lots of logical explanations.)
3) By comparing the two "Narrative life of Olaudah Equiano" and "Narrative life of Frederick Douglass" with of these will u choose to be the most persuasive and why? (Give reasons and examples)
For your first question, what it means is that Douglass no longer felt like a slave. He now felt like he was as good as anyone else and deserved freedom. He was still a slave, but he no longer had the sort of attitude that makes a person a slave in their own mind as well as in legal terms.
In answer to your last question, I think that Douglas is the more persuasive. The man had an intelligence and a dignity even while he was a slave. He also had a determination to become more. My favorite part is when he apostrophizes to the ships, comparing their chains to his.
