Frederick Douglass’s popular autobiography named ‘Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass: An American Slave’ is one of significant piece which brings the slavery into highlight. Published in the year of 1845 the book depicts the experience of Frederick Douglass as a slave. The whole book is the depiction of Fredrick’s sufferings as a slave. On the other hand, the other example depicting the dark side of society is Eyre Crowe’s ‘After the Sale: Slaves going south’ which is a painting piece. Crowe skillfully painted the hardship of the enslaved people whom Crowe saw in America while travelling throughout the country. Through the picture Crowe nicely painted how the slaves were being sold.
