"Friends for Freedom: The Story of Susan B. Anthony & Frederick Douglass" by Suzanne Slade
At a time when friendships between men and women were taboo, let alone between people of different races and classes, Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass defied social norms, united in their fight for social justice. They became friends in 1849, and were determined to fight for equal rights even amidst danger in the form of angry crowds and arson. Like all friends, they had differences of opinion that tested their friendship.
An “Author’s Note,” “Author’s Research Note,” “Illustrator’s Note” and “Timeline” at the end of the book give readers further information about these two unlikely friends.
