Prison Focus Mail Box #14. January 21, 2020. Literacy was deemed a threat by slave owners and still is. CPF correspondent, Martin, describes the mind numbing content of prison tv programming, and the overall lack of educational opportunities at CA Correctional Institute. . "Literacy played an important part in helping Frederick Douglass achieve his freedom. Learning to read and write enlightened his mind to the injustice of slavery; it kindled in his heart longings for liberty... Douglass was motivated to learn how to read by hearing his 'master' condemn the education of slaves. He heard him declare that an education would "spoil” him and “forever unfit him to be a slave”. He believed that the ability to read makes a slave “unmanageable” and “discontented”. Douglass discovered that the white man’s power to enslave the black man was in his literacy and education." [From an essay titled "Frederick Douglass: Escaping Slavery through Literacy" published by Bartleby Research (www.bartleby.com/) Produced by CPF Co-Director and Prison Focus editor, Kim Pollak.
