    1 thought on “Love Across Color Lines: Ottilie Assing and Frederick Douglass”

    1. CRAP I hate this, it's so interesting and juicy I can't help myself. Thinking about race, gender, and literacy.

    2. This is a book rich in history and gives the reader an interesting peek into the social and political world of German immigrants, abolitionists and the triumph over slavery. It is much more than a story of an interracial relationship. The author takes an affair that occurred over a hundred years ago and shows us the joy and sadness it brings to those involved in this intricate relationship. The author has done her research in writing this book and I enjoyed the photographs included. It is always [...]

    3. Fascinating look at Fredrick Douglass's personal life. This book is more about Ottilie Assing than it was about Douglass. She was a well educated and very strong woman, who inexplicably put herself at the mercy of Douglass.

    4. I read this book mostly for research material for a book I'm writing. While a little dry (which, I think, is often the nature of the beast with biographies) I found myself gasping at the end. Without giving away the ending, I can say it was certainly not what I expected.

    5. the sheer life-long passion of the abolitionists is a signal example to us all. these people are AWESOME, and the presentation ain't bad either.

    6. I didn't know that Frederick Douglass had a white mistress for roughly 20 years. It's informative not only about their relationship, but also about the politics of the time and Douglass' positions.

    7. Add to your reading list to better understand race relations in US antebellum South. Douglass is not the only one with this story.
