Douglass and Justice

Today, we began our final book of the year: Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass. It is a powerful, horrifying, and deeply meaningful account of the life of an incredible man who escaped slavery and then became a catalyst for the Abolitionist movement across the country.

Today, we read chapter 1 aloud and discussed it, as well as went over some of the historical background on slavery in America.

Orr word of the day today is REPLENISH, and our words for tomorrow's vocab quiz are: REPLENISH, SONNET, TUTELAGE, ACRIMONY, and TENABLE.
