Description

Nikki Grimes offers a glimpse into the inspiring lives of Susan B. Anthony and Harriet Tubman, with breathtaking illustrations by Michele Wood! What if Harriet Tubman and Susan B. Anthony sat down over tea to reminisce about their extraordinary lives? What would they recall of their triumphs and struggles as they fought to achieve civil rights for African Americans and equal rights for women? And what other historical figures played parts in their stories? These questions led Coretta Scott King Award winner Nikki Grimes to create CHASING FREEDOM, an engaging work of historical fiction about two of the nineteenth century's most powerful, and inspiring, American women. With breathtaking illustrations by Coretta Scott King Award winner Michele Wood, CHASING FREEDOM richly imagines the experiences of Tubman and Anthony, set against the backdrop of the Underground Railroad, the Civil War, and the Women's Suffrage Movement. Additional back matter invites curious young readers to further explore this period in history--and the larger-than-life figures who lived it.

Professional reviews

"Straightforwardly, narrator Lizan Mitchell sets the book's historical scene. It's 1904, and Susan B. Anthony is to introduce Harriet Tubman at the 28th annual convention of the New York Suffrage Association. Mitchell's narration turns rhythmic as she delivers the lyrical writing of Nikki Grimes, who pictures the two women meeting over tea. Awaiting her guest, Anthony describes Tubman as a woman whose stories are "river deep." Mitchell actualizes that characterization in a voice that is deep, slow, and sonorous. Mitchell's portrayal of Anthony is crisp, with forceful bursts that reveal her beliefs and oratory skills. The audiobook's breadth is vast as it speaks of slavery, women's rights, and other historical events and people. Mitchell's vocal range enlivens the historical stories, the women's remembrances, and the interplay of their conversation. S.W. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
