Reviews:
"...Glover richly portrays the friendship between Lincoln and Douglass...complemented with a characteristically fine soundtrack..." - ***, Video Librarian
"Bryan Collier's exquisite multimedia illustrations are iconographically scanned, (his) often haunting work merits close examination. Original music also helps creat a production that touches both heart and mind. (It offers) a variety of classroom uses and curriculum applications." - School Library Journal
"Danny Glover's narration is deep and friendly, backed up by subtle sound effects...The music is particularly stunning...and the combination of the beautiful nightime scene (and) swelling music feels cinematic and stirring." - AudioFile
