For the majority of the decade of 1840, Douglass was a supporter of the Garrisonian interpretation of the constitution. An essential aspect to the Garrisonian interpretation is the socio-historical approach, wherein the interpreter takes into account the social climate of the time, and, in this case, the ‘original intent’ of the document as the framers intended. As Douglass himself said in 1849, “The original intent and meaning of the Constitution (the one given it by the men who framed it, those who adopted it, and the one given it by the Supreme Court of the United States) makes it a pro-slavery instrument.” This Garrisonian phase of his evolution of thought regarding the Constitution is steeped in social context and characterizes his experience with the socio-historical approach. He reached his conclusion by not only utilizing the text itself and the context in which it was written, but in the decisions by the court through American history (as of then) and the practical consequences of such decisions. “Speak what you think now in hard words, and to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict everything you said to-day.” A sentiment first brought into mainstream thought by Ralph Waldo Emerson, but has evident influence on Douglass’ mind during his transition to his new stance on the Constitution. In the March 1849 edition of Douglass’ newspaper The North Star, he began to lay the framework for a public change of opinion. In a sort of year-long preface to his formal announcement of his change of opinion, he wrote “The only truly consistent man is he who will, for the sake of being right today, contradict what he said wrong yesterday.” as he preceded his new statement that would “contradict what he said wrong yesterday.” On the 23rd of May in 1851, Douglass published his “Change of Opinion Announced” in The North Star. This was the start of his new crusade against “what he said yesterday”. He was now formally a constitutional abolitionist, and contended that the federal government was warranted to abolish slavery, including states in which it was legal, and could do so due to the power given to the government by the Constitution itself. The new method of interpretation that empowered Douglass to be confident in his new views was a textualist >GET ANSWER
