FREDERICK DOUGLASS BOOK PRIZE
Each year the Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition presents the Frederick Douglass Book Prize, an annual award for the most outstanding nonfiction book in English on the subject of slavery and/or abolition and antislavery movements. Publishers and authors are invited to submit books that meet these criteria. We are interested in all geographical areas and time periods. Please note, however, that works related to the Civil War are acceptable only if their primary focus relates to slavery or emancipation.
Nominations for books copyrighted in 2014 are now being accepted. The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2015. To receive instructions on how to submit a book, please contact the Gilder Lehrman Center, MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies, at 230 Prospect Street, New Haven, CT 06511, fax (203) 432-6943, or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
