I can't give this book no stars but it deserves it Susan B Anthony actively sold out the black community in order to get white women and only white women the right to vote This book is a lazy example of I can't be racist I have a black friend Instead of another tired Susan B Anthony book can we please have some children's books about black suffragist and abolitionist women like Mary Church Terrell and Ida B Wells

Her for tea and conversation They recount their similar stories fighting to win rights for women and African Americans The premise of th. It's pretty superficial They did meet and they should have had plenty to talk about but this paints a pretty picture of mutual support that implies significance and ignores Anthony's rejection of eual rights for Black women lest it harm her cause I'm not saying that getting into all of that belongs in a children's book but the broach the subject and not do it justice is not the answer

Two FriendsSome people had rights while others had noneWhy shouldn't they have them tooTwo friends Susan B Anthony and Frederick Douglass get toget. I was horrified to discover how historically misleading the book is The ending and the afterword suggest that these two major historical figures walked arm in arm into the sunset working toward their joint goals for the rest of their lives Nothing could be further from the truthIt was unfortunate that the only fact checking for the book came from someone at the Susan B Anthony Museum since it's in their interest to make her look good and to minimize the later conflict between these two figuresIn the REAL world Susan B Anthony's uest for women's rights took her to some very dark places and she ended up allying herself with others who opposed voting rights for African Americans Her own stated reasons made her seem almost petty and jealous since women weren't getting rights at the same time The fact was though that she actively campaigned against voting rights for African AmericansI don't mind the simplistic happy ending portrayed in the book as much as I mind the afterword which could have been used to explain the complexities of the real issues and how sometimes friends can have differences of opinion The story in a picture book isn't structured to permit detailed historical analysis but if you're going to tell historical fiction and then present a bibliography and notes then please don't lie to the little kids Simplify if you must but don't lieAlso the tea party was portrayed in a way that almost seemed like a romantic Victorian get together rather than a meeting of euals and social activists That seemed a little weird especially since there's a famous statue of the same meeting but without the candlelight and cheesecakeI am disappointed in OrchardScholastic for publishing the book in this form I can hardly wait for their future book on the lifelong friendship of Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump based on his long ago support of Democrats
