"Frederick Douglass on Slavery and the Civil War: Selections from His Writings" encapsulates the essence of one of the most pivotal voices in American history.

Through a curated selection of his speeches and writings, readers are drawn into the heart of 19th-century struggles involving the slave trade, the Civil War, and the push for voting rights and civil liberties for African-Americans. Ideal for high school students, this book not only sheds light on the racial injustices of the past but also ignites a conversation about their continuous impact.
