Today I would like to take the time to honor Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey, otherwise known as Frederick Douglass. Frederick Douglass, an African American man, an abolitionist, attacked Jim Crow laws and lynching. His three autobiographies serve as slave narratives, Douglass is known for his voice, speaking against slavery and racism, and simply giving hope to other slaves.
"I prayed for twenty years but relieved no answer until I prayed with my legs." -Frederick Douglass
If I shall die before they wake, I pray the Lord my shades are safe.
