An escaped slave who became an eloquent abolitionist and powerful force for equal rights, Frederick Douglass (1818-95) is one of the most important African American figures in U.S. history. But as this biography for readers 9 to 12 reveals, there is much more to Douglass's story than his famous autobiography. Delving into his family life and travel abroad, this portrait by the author of the Coretta Scott King Honor Book Maritcha: A Nineteenth Century American Girl evokes Douglass in all his complexity. The dozens of images include period art and rare photographs of Douglass and his family.
