    When he remarried, his longtime lover (also white) killed herself.
    As a slave, he fought back when he was beaten, and as a result was never whipped again.
    He escaped his master by impersonating a seaman and sailing away on a ship.
    He was a brilliant speaker and writer.
    He wrote an autobiography while still in his twenties.
    He sheltered many runaway slaves trying to escape to freedom.
