Summary
During the post-Civil War Reconstruction era, African American social reformer Frederick Douglas lived the last 18 years of his life in the Anacostia area of Washington, DC, where he bought a Victorian mansion and married a white woman, activities unheard of for most African American men of his time. Author Muller, a journalist and historian, details Douglas's activities in local politics, education, journalism, and public service during the period, and examines responses to his marriage. The book includes b&w historical and contemporary photos. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
