Explain Douglass's Reasoning Why Or Why Not?

65 Words1 Page
A you noted Douglass never know his exact age. This according to Douglass was an attempt on the part of the slave owner to keep slaves "ignorant", because a slave with knowledge is dangerous to the slave owners way of life (Douglass, 1845, P. 237). I personally believe Douglass was completely correct in his assumption. Do you agree with Douglass 's reasoning, why or why not?
