Sidney Morrison

Frederick Douglass is an extraordinarily well-researched novel whose historical characters come alive as they tell their own stories. With the artistry of a novelist and authenticity of a scholar, Morrison breathes life into well-known historical figures . . .  and speaks for many who have been, heretofore, voiceless, especially women . . . Morrison makes real and personal a period in U.S. history that is foundational to American gender and racial identities. An enthralling read, Frederick Douglass also will be an exceptional supplemental text for courses in the Civil War, Women’s Studies, and Black Studies.
