Quotes to Live By: Frederick Douglass

Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is in an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob, and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.Frederick Douglass


A great writer and leader of the abolitionist movement, Frederick Douglass was the first Black person to be nominated as Vice President of the United States. He was born a slave in February 1818, but fled and escaped to freedom in 1838. He went on to serve as US Marshal for DC, Recorder of Deeds for DC, and Minister Resident and Consul General to Haiti, making him one of the first Black people to hold high government offices. #blackhistorymonth2019 #blackhistory #frederickdouglass #quotestoliveby

About

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
