These tasks were to find others with his ideas, to tell other people about his ideas and to go through changes in himself. The one thing that Douglass needed to complete these tasks was an education. He needed to be educated in academics but also in the ways of the world. Being educated in academics allowed Douglass to express his ideas to others and read these of others. Social education allowed Douglass the ability to change himself. He learned how he was viewed in society and this helped him understand a way to change others ideas about slavery.
