Portrait of Civil War era African American hero Frederick Douglass by Robert Shetterly, Americans Who Tell the Truth
"Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe."
- Frederick Douglass -
With no formal schooling and born into slavery, Douglass escaped his cruel master and fled to New York where he began his life-long struggle against slavery and the oppression of African Americans.
