The Columbian Orator Symbol Analysis

The Columbian Orator Symbol Icon
After teaching himself to read, Douglass studies books that deal with oppression. He reads The Columbian Orator, in which a slave presents compelling arguments for emancipation. The book also includes speeches from the Catholic Relief movement in England, in which activists successfully campaigned for the removal of restrictions on Roman Catholics. These literary experiences persuade Douglass that the truth is powerful enough to overcome even the most bigoted slaveholder’s views.
