WMNF Drive-Time News Monday | Listen to this entire show:

In the new book written by historian John Stauffer, called, Giants, the Harvard professor writes about the lives of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass, and specifically, three meetings between the two.

Lincoln was of course, the country’s 16th president who led measures that resulted in the abolition of slavery.

Douglass was one of the foremost leaders of the abolitionist movement.

WMNF spoke with Professor Stauffer about his book last month. Stay tuned for the second part of this interview later this week.
