On the morning of February 21, 1895, the day after the great Frederick Douglass died, Susan B. Anthony arrives on his widow's doorstep. She is there to grieve - but is she also feeling guilty? Four Women Talking About the Man Under the Sheet is a funny, entertaining exploration of feminism and race, asking "what compromises should you make in pursuit of a cause?"
