Frederick Douglass - From Slave to Abolitionist to Google's Hompage







Today on Google's home page, on the first day of Black History month is a special Google logo, aka Doodle, with Frederick Douglass on it. 




 Abolitionist leader Frederick Douglass was born into slavery in Talbot County, Maryland. He became one of the most famous intellectuals of his time, advising presidents and lecturing to thousands on a range of causes, including women’s rights and Irish home rule. Among Douglass’ writings are several autobiographies eloquently describing his experiences in slavery and his life after the Civil War.



3 famous quotes by Frederick Douglass

if there is no struggle, there is no progress.
Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.
It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.
