Powerful. Passionate. Majestic.
Frederick Douglass rose from slavery to become the leading African American of his day, a friend of presidents, and an advocate of the oppressed.

Frederick Douglass for Kids is a book for middle grade and high school students that offers a fresh perspective of this influential activist for human rights who lived during the Civil War era. Featuring photographs of historic sites from his birthplace to his death, many of these images have never before been seen together in one book. Come walk in the footsteps of this American hero through the pages of this book and learn more about this man, his nation, and his world.

“Thoughtful and well-researched” and a “thorough and involving examination of a great man, equally suited to individual immersion and classroom collaboration.”
