Frederick Douglass, a former slave and eminent human rights leader in the abolition movement, was the first black citizen to hold a high U.S. government rank. He became one of the most famous intellectuals of his time, advising presidents and lecturing to thousands.
Did you know Frederick Douglass began publishing the North Star, the abolitionist weekly paper in 1847? See more of his contributions to the abolitionist movement with THE AFRICAN AMERICANS: MANY RIVERS TO CROSS.
Frederick Douglass "I didn't know I was a slave until I found out I couldn't do the things I wanted." Douglass was indeed a visionary. His words held incredible significance hundreds of years ago, & they still ring true today. Honoring this incredible legendary intellectual & abolitionist as we explore and learn from BLACK HISTORY in America and the struggle that produced freedom for all men everywhere in God's creation.
All for helping the needy, feeding the hungry, and sheltering the homeless but I am AGAINST those who CAN do for themselves sitting back and doing nothing while the rest of us bust our nalgas for them... Stupid Major Corporations! ;)
