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, Lincoln and Douglass formed a strong bond over shared ideals and worked alongside each other for a common goal.
The acclaimed team behind "Rosa," winner of the Coretta Scott King Award and a Caldecott Honor book, join forces once more to portray this historic friendship at a unique moment in time.
Bryan Collier is the author and illustrator of "Uptown", winner of the Coretta Scott King Award and the Ezra Jack Keats Book Award. He is also the illustrator of "Martin's Big Words "by Doreen Rappaport and "Rosa" by Nikki Giovanni, both of which are Caldecott Honor Books. The "Chicago Sun-Times" has called Collier's art "breathtakingly beautiful." Mr. Collier lives with his family in Harlem in New York City.
