Pulitzer Prize–winning author McFeely captures the power and the contemplative nature of Douglass, while shedding light on the insecurities and humanity of the man himself. The power of this landmark biography lies in McFeely’s ability to bring to life not only the charismatic man, but the age as well—detailing the struggle for emancipation in the political arena as the nation moved toward civil war.
