Meet two of the most important and influential people in the history of the struggle of equal rights and equality of all Americans.
Susan B Anthony: a champion and tireless advocate for women's rights.
Frederick Douglass: a champion and tireless advocate for African American rights.
Meet two talented, generous, and gracious members of the children's book community.
Sean Qualls: illustrator of Dizzy, Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor Before John Was a Jazz Giant, and Schneider Family Book Award Winner Emmanuel's Dream.
Selina Alko: author and illustrator of twelve books including Daddy Christmas and Hanukkah Mama, B is for Brooklyn, and a personal favorite (which I recommend frequently) Every-Day Dress-Up.
Together they also created the illustrations for A Case for Loving.
Sean and Selina worked in concert to create the illustrations for Two Friends, a picture book based on a statue in Rochester, New York which portrays Anthony and Douglass enjoying tea together.
The book, as well as the statue, is representative of the ongoing friendship and professional collaboration between these two leaders in the movement for equality and equal rights for all.
"Some people had rights, while others had none.
Why shouldn't they have them too?"
