THE FAILED PROMISE: Reconstruction, Frederick Douglass, and the Impeachment of Andrew Johnson
Portrays the conflicts that brought Frederick Douglass and the wider Black community to reject Andrew Johnson and call for a guilty verdict in his impeachment trail. In counterpointing the lives and careers of Douglass and Johnson, Levine offers a distinctive vision of the lost promise and dire failure of Reconstruction, the effects of which still reverberate today.
