2012 Frederick Douglass Book Prize

The Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition is pleased to announce the 2012 Frederick Douglass Book Prize, an annual award for the most outstanding nonfiction book published 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 published in 2011 will be accepted beginning in January 2012. The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2012. To receive instructions on how to submit a book (information will be available in late fall/early winter), 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
