It is not light that we need, but fire; it is not the gentle shower, but thunder. We need the storm, the whirlwind, and the earthquake. #frederickdouglass

This is part of one of the four new drawings we recently acquired by Meleko Mokgosi, a New York-based artist originally from Botswana. The drawings were exhibited at the Rochester Contemporary Art Center’s No Soil Better Frederick Douglass exhibit. The pieces are called Untitled (Drawings for Frederick Douglass), 2018. Each is a rubbing of one of the plinths from the Frederick Douglass statue at Highland Bowl, with annotations and commentary from the artist. #frederickdouglass #frederickdouglass200 #Douglass200 #FD200 #RBSCP #RoCo137 #melekomokgosi

“Freedom now appeared, to disappear no more forever. It was heard in every sound and seen in every thing. It was very present to torment me with a sense of my wretched condition. I saw nothing without seeing it, I heard nothing without hearing it, and felt nothing without feeling it. It looked from every star, it smiled in every calm, breathed in every wind, and moved in every storm.” / This is such a powerful and important book. I’m very happy to have found this pretty edition during my latest book haul and look forward to finding the perfect place for it on my shelves. If you haven’t ever read this, I would recommend picking it up one day for both its crisp writing and its historical significance. #booksofinstagram #books #bookstagram #booksofig #bookish #booksandflowers #classics #booksofinsta #classicbooks #history #americanclassics #booksbooksbooks #frederickdouglass #bookphoto #bookphotography #bookstagrammer #booksandroses

I will not give up on my dreams. Nothing comes easy... and nothing is more enjoyable than achieving something that you have worked hard for. It can only make your success that much sweeter. Keep striving for your goals and absorb every lesson that accompanies your struggle. Happy wednesday. #nothingcomeseasy #frederickdouglass #positivevibes
"Whether at home or abroad, I will never forget the very kind manner I was received in Limerick" - having spent two weeks in the city as part of a four month stay in #Ireland , these were just some of his own thoughts on the experience. Frederick Douglass is known to have given an inspirational speech at what is now @thebutterylimerick on Bedford Row. #Limerick had active links to the slave trade with merchant families involved in their transportation from the West Indies, but with this there were also mass antislavery protests in Limerick including a boycott of products related to slavery, including sugar. “Oh what a transition it was to be changed from the state of a slave to that of a free man!” He said, summing up his stay "Whether at home or abroad, I will never forget the very kind manner I was received in Limerick" - having spent two weeks in the city as part of a four month stay in Ireland, these were just some of his own thoughts on the experience.

Love this! My friend @where_the_h commissioned a mural design for her students to paint. Here’s the rough blocking, she’s got some talented middle schoolers that will paint all the nifty details! #frederickdouglass #panthers
The Mayor of New Bedford, MA issued a proclamation to commemorate the 180th anniversary of the arrival of Frederick and Anna Johnson on Sep 17, 1838 in the city. This was just two weeks after he escaped from slavery in Baltimore. Having just married in NYC prior to their arrival, they would begin their lives together taking on the new surname, Douglass. Henceforth, Sep 17th will be forever known as #FrederickDouglass Day (w/Kristin Leary).

#frederickdouglass imagined as a goal keeper, by Omar Victor Diop
I was the person stuck in addiction, greed, and immaturity. The drug dealer lifestyle, making quick money, and the power that came with it were something I never wanted to give up. The freedom to do anything then was addiction, yet I was never free in that state of mind. Prison gave me my life back as it removed me from all I knew. I was the enemy of society and now I just wish to help others. I used women and now I just want to advocate for equality. I cheated the system and now I want to work with it to promote real progress for others. People can change through experience. Like Fredrick Douglas said “if there is no struggle there is no progress.” I do have remorse for my actions. I wish I could make the world better for everyone I’ve affected negatively. I hope with time I can be everything opposite of my shadow from yesterday. #future #recovery #addiction #getbettersoon #getbetter #health #learn #treatment #addictionrecovery #codependency #codependent #recover #habits #behavior #makegoodchoices #life #liveright #forward #babysteps #choices #patience #quotes #albuquerque #stayalive #practice #endaddiction #endrecidivism #recidivismreduction #frederickdouglass

Back when i had the time to sit and sketch! This is why i got into shooting photos. It’s like a faster way to capture the beauty of an object or person. Shout out to Frederick Douglass and Ossie Davis for their work! I hope i did them well with these black and whites!

“If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground.
