“Music knows no color,” about Frederick Douglass’ violin-playing grandson, Joseph Douglass, playing classical music before a stunned crowd at the Chicago World’s Fair, was nominated by Atticus Review for the legendary Pushcart Prize. For the uninitiated, the Pushcart Prize is an annual anthology compiled by veteran editors who read and review thousands of pieces submitted from editors of other presses. Every press in the world is invited to submit their six best pieces from the calendar year for consideration for the award, and Atticus Review chose to nominate Leah’s story.
