This book is about Frederick Douglass
"Frederick Douglass and the Fourth of July" takes readers back to July 5th, 1852, to experience one of the most compelling abolitionist speeches by Frederick Douglass, a former slave and one of the most eloquent orators of his time. In this thought-provoking book, author James A. Colaiaco sets the stage with a vivid portrayal of America's atmosphere as it teetered on the brink of the Civil War.

Ideal for elementary school readers, this book provides an essential perspective on racial justice and the powerful role of advocacy in shaping American history.
