Fredrick Douglass was not Your Modern Day Black Republican - Black History



Listen to Podcast


Fredrick Douglass was born a slave, educated himself, freed himself and went on to become one of the greatest African-American freedom fighters. He used his intellect to outsmart slavers and was a part of the Underground Railroad which worked to help fugitive enslaved Africans escape to the north and freedom.

Fredrick Douglass was also associated with the Abolitionist movement and it was Douglass who had access to President Abraham Lincoln, that put the most pressure on Lincoln to allow former slaves fight in the Civil War and later the emancipation of enslaved Africans and their children.He was not anything like modern day Republicans. He was the searing conscious of America.
