Frederick Douglass (February 1818 - February 20, 1895) was an American abolitionist, editor, orator, author, statesman and reformer.

Frederick Douglas was one of the foremost leaders of the abolitionist movement, which fought to end slavery within the United States in the decades prior to the Civil War. A brilliant speaker, Douglass was asked by the American Anti-Slavery Society to engage in a tour of lectures, and so became recognized as one of America's first great black speakers. He won world fame when his autobiography was publicized in 1845. Two years later he bagan publishing an antislavery paper called the North Star.

Douglass served as an adviser to President Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War and fought for the adoption of constitutional amendments that guaranteed voting rights and other civil liberties for blacks. Douglass provided a powerful voice for human rights during this period of American history and is still revered today for his contributions against racial injustice.

Why am I using this great page to network? Because life has become a game of hide and seek to some people, and we're losing. Who I am? i'm one of the poorest in America.

Having been incarcerated three times, I'm also a least in the kingdom of God. But I know the lord, now, and I've done my part. I spoke. I can smile, and be proud.

God bless all of you! shop/designs
