An updated edition of a classic African American autobiography, with new supplementary materials


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


Teacher. Self-emancipator. Orator. Author. Man. Frederick Douglass (1818-1895) 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 Douglass's 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.
