*The truth and justice are two different things, if u pick one then the other will be a bad decision. Only a very few can make a new path which can choose both.

freedom in the city
*Some homeless free slaves had their papers destroy and sold back into slavery.
*alot of the free slaves were in the city but was living on the streets.

the white children who help him learn to read and write, the sailors who teach him a trade, and people from the North who show him that not all whites are slave owners.
knowledge is the path to freedom

In the city, Douglass learns to read and meets a wide variety of people who help him on his road to freedom, the white children who help him learn to read and write, the sailors who teach him a trade, and people from the North who show him that not all whites are slave owners.
Hugh Auld shows the theme knowledge is the path to freedom because he tells his wife not to teach FD to read so he wouldn't be unmanageable
light vs dark
It's like a coin, dark is tails amd light is heads. Its about luck, chance and probability.
An epic battle that lasted throughout time.
"As the sun and the moon struggle to cover the earth, the same as control with the slaves and the master.
they used the bible and there trust in god.
