Lawrence, Jacob, 1917-.
1938-9. Excerpts from the Frederick Douglass Series: Part I: The Slave: No. 10.
Caption: The Master of Douglass, seeing he was of a rebellious nature, sent him to a Mr. Covey, a man who had built up a reputation as a “slave breaker.” A second attempt by Covey to flog Douglass was unsuccessful. This was one of the most important incidents in the life of Frederick Douglass: he was never attacked again by Covey. His philosophy: a slave easily flogged is flogged oftener; a slave who resists flogging is flogged less.
Place: Hampton University (Va.). Museum.
