Overview
Frederick Douglass's daughter tells her own story of segregation and triumph.

"Rosetta, Rosetta, Sit by me " That's what the white girls at Miss Tracy's Female Seminary yell when Rosetta, Frederick Douglass's nine-year-old daughter, shows up on the first day of school. But things don't turn out the way she expects. Not only does she have to study in a classroom all by herself, but she's also kept apart at recess. Told in Rosetta's voice, and illustrated throughout, this remarkable chapter book includes a biographical endnote; a time line; reproductions of a letter from Rosetta to her father and Frederick Douglass's newspaper, the North Star; and source notes.
