Frederick Douglass: A Powerful Voice for Freedom (Sterling Biographies) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From slave to freedom fighter: that was the long and hard journey taken by Frederick Douglass. Douglass was Americas first great civil rights leader, and he threw off the physical, mental, and legal chains of slavery to become one of Americas greatest champions for human rights. It was said that his life was proof that once black people could read and write about their injustices, they would have the power to end slavery. Frances E. Ruffin explores this inspiring figure in all his complexity, and captures the hardships, prejudice, and violence Douglass endured as he fought for justice. Numerous fascinating illustrations, photos, and engravings show Douglasss family, abolition meetings, Civil War battles, freed blacks getting their first vote, and more.

Packed with information and filled with unique images that range from rare photographs and artwork to maps and personal artifacts, Sterling Biographies feature first-person accounts and dramatic events related in an intimate and accessible style. Helpful sidebars, timelines, and glossary definitions will enhance understanding of historys most fascinating figures.
