Harold Holzer, historian
Featuring Norm Lewis, actor/singer
Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass never publicly debated. But using words from their correspondence and commentary, illustrated by period images, historian Harold Holzer brings the two great figures face-to-face. Featuring Tony Award-Nominated actor and singer Norm Lewis (Porgy and Bess, Phantom of the Opera, ABC’s Scandal).
Bring the Kids for $1.
