From award-winning author Tonya Bolden comes the fascinating story of one of AmericaÕs most influential African American voices

Teacher. Self-emancipator. Orator. Author. Man. Frederick Douglass (1818à 1895) is one of the most important African American figures in US history, best known, perhaps, for his own emancipation. But there is much more to DouglassÕs story than his time spent in slavery and his famous autobiography. Delving into his family life and travel abroad, this book captures the whole complicated, and at times perplexing, person that he was. As a statesman, suffragist, writer, newspaperman, and lover of the arts, Douglass the man, rather than the historical icon, is the focus in Facing Frederick.
