From Newbery medalist Russell Freedman, a clear-sighted account of two surprisingly parallel lives and how they intersected at a critical moment in US history. Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass were both self-taught, both great readers and believers in the importance of literacy, both men born poor who by their own efforts reached positions of power and prominence--Lincoln as president of the United States and Douglass as the most famous and influential African American of his time.Douglass, an impassioned spokesman for racial justice, thought President Lincoln wasn't addressing issues of race soon enough or firmly enough, but came to respect and admire him. For his part, Lincoln agreed with much of what Douglass argued for--but he had a war to win and a nation to reunite, and had to make changes when and how he could. The lives of these extraordinary men and the details of their brief friendship are narrated against the backdrop of race relations and politics before and during the Civil War. Includes about 70 archival photographs, bibliography, source notes, and index. 

Russell Freedman is the award-winning author of numerous books. His nonfiction books range in subject from the lives and behaviors of animals to people in history whose impact is still felt today. Freeedman's work has earned him several awards, including a Newbery Medal in 1994 for Lincoln: a Photobiography, a Newbery Honor each for Eleanor Roosevelt: A Life of Discovery in 1994 and The Wright Brothers: How They Invented the Airplane in 1992, and a Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal.
