Booklist review of Frederick Douglass, "Truth is of No Color"

Reviewer, Gillian Engberg, discusses Frederick Douglass, "Truth is of No Color" in the June 1 issue of Booklist.

"From the opening, heart-pounding scenes of Frederick Douglass’ flight to freedom to his childhood, spent in slavery, and his history-making adult life, this entry in Americans—The Spirit of a Nation series is an engaging introduction to the famous abolitionist. Well-sourced excerpts, including many passages from Douglass’ own writings, and vivid description enliven the text, which also includes sidebars focused on related historical figures and events."
