FACING FREDERICK The Life of Frederick Douglass, a Monumental American Man

by | Read by Adam Lazarre-White

Children Ages 10+ • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Narrator Adam Lazarre-White tackles the monumental task of giving voice to one of the best-known orators in American history in this wide-ranging biography of Frederick Douglass. The listener enters the story as Douglass is finding his voice both figuratively and literally, risking recapture into slavery to go on increasingly popular lecture tours to promote abolition. Lazarre-White's smooth, unhurried delivery is a perfect match for the weight and authority of Douglass's words, which are quoted extensively throughout the text. Each section of narrative also includes quotes from articles and speeches made about Douglass and the causes he championed. These are equally well voiced, but can be confusing without the visual signals that would set them apart from the main story. N.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2018]
