Our sixteenth president is known for many things: he delivered the Emancipation Proclamation and the Gettysburg Address during the Civil War. He was tall and skinny and notoriously stern-looking. And he also had some very strong ideas about abolishing slavery, ideas which brought him into close contact with another very visible public figure: Frederick Douglass. Douglass was born a slave but escaped in 1838 and became one of the central figures in the history of the American abolitionist movement.

This book offers a glimpse into the unusual friendship between two great American leaders. At a time when racial tensions were high and racial equality was not yet established, Abraham Lincoln and Douglass formed a strong bond over shared ideals and worked alongside each other for a common goal.

Nikki Giovani is one of America’s foremost poets. Author of a Caldecott Honor Book, an American Book Award winner, and a National Book Award finalist, these are just three of the countless awards and honors this incredible writer has received.

Bryan Collier burst on to the world of children’s book with his second picture book, Uptown, which he both wrote and illustrated and for which he received the Coretta Scott King Award for illustration as well as the Ezra Jack Keats New Illustrator awards. He has since then been awarded with four Caldecott Honors, five more Coretta Scott King Awards, and four Coretta Scott King honors.
