Narrator Dion Graham depicts the scene as a tea service is being set out. Susan B. Anthony welcomes Frederick Douglass, and together they begin a conversation. Graham sounds conversational himself, gently offering details about these two famous people. Anthony is eager to learn about important subjects as boys do, teaches herself to give speeches, and prefers wearing bloomers to dresses. Douglass is enthusiastic to learn to read and write, thrills at encountering new ideas, and publishes his own newspaper. Graham's clear voice and leisurely pacing make clear Anthony and Douglass's conviction that all people have the right to vote and to live freely. Quiet music, speeches, and crowd response add to the narration, and an author's note completes the production. A.R. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2017]
