about

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.
 
Tonya Bolden’s work has garnered much praise, including the Coretta Scott King Author Honor Award, James Madison Award, School Library Journal Best Book of the Year, and the Young Adult Library Services Association Best Book for Young Adults list.

Editorial Reviews

"The text introduces its readers to new documents and scholarship about the once enslaved abolitionist. It’s also compelling to read Douglass’s words in breakout quotes and captions. This is an excellent biography . . ."
