“[T]he Kendricks have done wonderful work exploring one of the most complex and important relationships in American history.” ―Chuck Leddy, Christian Science Monitor
“Since emancipation and its aftermath prompt divergent interpretations of Lincoln, the Kendricks' fluid account of Douglass' influence reliably lays a factual foundation for debaters about this momentous passage in American history.” ―Gilbert Taylor, Booklist
“The Kendricks beautifully assess the political and moral, and often conflicting, agendas of each man, but they excel, particularly in their treatment of Douglass, at personalizing one of the history's most unlikely and effective political allies...A wise and sensitive appreciation of the intersecting careers of two giants of American history.” ―Kirkus Reviews
“Filled with passion and intrigue, Douglass and Lincoln vividly brings to life an unlikely partnership that will grow to epitomize the transformation of a nation. This captivating double portrait illuminates both figures, often in surprising ways.” ―Forrest Church, author of So Help Me God: The Founding Fathers and the First Great Battle over Church and State
“The Kendricks have done it again! Here is important history, well written and well told. They have given us the eyes of Frederick Douglass to see Abraham Lincoln without the martyrdom and the Civil War without the mythology. Intimate, accurate, and thoughtful, Douglass and Lincoln should be the starting place for anyone wishing to understand how Northern blacks saw the political turmoil of the 1850s and the Civil War.” ―Donald Yacovone, W.E.B. Du Bois Institute, Harvard University
“Douglass and Lincoln transports you back into the private meetings, debate halls and violent clashes that gripped our nation as it wrestled with the question of how to end slavery while preserving a fragile union. It's a compelling book of history, as well as a great read for those learning to be leaders who make history.” ―Congressman Jesse L. Jackson, Jr. (D-IL)
