to change America.

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
