About the Book

Facing Frederick: The Life of Frederick Douglass, a Monumental American Man

Frederick Douglass (1818–1895) is best known for the telling of his own emancipation. But there is much more to Douglass’s story than his time spent enslaved and his famous autobiography. FACING FREDERICK captures the whole complicated, and at times perplexing, person that he was. Statesman, suffragist, writer and newspaperman, this book focuses on Douglass the man rather than the historical icon.

Audiobook available, narrated by Adam Lazarre-White.
