#repost @glennondoyle => For the greater balance of my life I found myself at odds with #christianity for the inconsistency between the words and actions of people wielding power and the words and actions of Jesus Christ -in 2013 I made peace with it. And you have to get bold enough to know the difference. And once you know the difference, make it your mission if so moved to embody the truth of Christ rather than the contradiction of the truth of #unconditionallove and mercy. It is part of your witness to the world to not go silently when you see the word which is to uplift humanity be twisted and appropriated for emboldening heartless behavior. We are called to be merciful, kind and non-judgmental ..... and for those of you would like context here’s the rest of the text from Frederick Douglass >>>. "I therefore hate the corrupt, slaveholding, women-whipping, cradle-plundering, partial and hypocritical Christianity of the land... I look upon it as the climax of all misnomers, the boldest of all frauds, and the grossest of all libels. Never was there a clearer case of 'stealing the livery of the court of heaven to serve the devil in.' I am filled with unutterable loathing when I contemplate the religious pomp and show, together with the horrible inconsistencies, which every where surround me. We have men-stealers for ministers, women-whippers for missionaries, and cradle-plunderers for church members. The man who wields the blood-clotted cowskin during the week fills the pulpit on Sunday, and claims to be a minister of the meek and lowly Jesus. . . .” #frederickdouglass

God gave me the gift prebirth, been doing it all my life but without purpose, a year ago that gift was given purpose, gift with purpose shows you your destiny. I look at my art hanging up and I say to myself like “ yo this is crazy, I did all this”. I just stare.. amazed at God.

It was soooo hot n sunny outside and the plants became super HD ✨📷 ▪️▪️▪️ I read #frederickdouglass ‘s book last year for my “A Person Who Helped Abolish Slavery” and I loved the book so much. His autobiography is almost like a fictional story with its perfectly splayed out details and colorful impressions of strength and freedom. I’ve always wanted to read the book, therefor I was really excited when the teacher said that I can pick anyone and I literally pushed a girl out of my way (girl, move ya lifeless body) to scribble his name on the board 😂😂✨ 📷📷📷 Who’s a historical figure that you look up to? Mine is in this pic ✨ 📷📷📷 #reader #bookgram #booksfeatures #bookstagrammer #mybookishfeatures #photography #bookphotography #slavery #abolishslavery #abolishionist #penguinclassics

"It is easier to build strong children, than to repair broken men" -#FrederickDouglass #Hashtags #ArtWork #RIP #RipX #Art #Music #Children #Blue #Green #Life #Beautiful #Build #Strong #Boys #Men #xxxTentacion ...just a #kid
Invest in the children. Build them up and teach them the values that will make them great later on in life. Be wise in the way you teach them so they don’t repeat the mistakes of their elders. #morninginspiration #quotestoliveby #blackexcellence #blackchildren #frederickdouglass #Family #trainachildinthewaytheyshouldgo
I would give almost anything to own one of the few homes left near this historic beach founded by #frederickdouglass ’ son. Anybody got a hookup?

2 years ago late one night my boy called me and asked if we could meet and give him advice about running for delegate. As a good friend I met with him and gave the best advice about the political game and a good strategy how to get into it. Fast forward, 2 years later he shocked me when he told me he's going to run for county council not delegate during this 2018 election season. While I manage another campaign, I watch my boy @voteforbjpaige for 8 days at a poll run a clean and good campaign. Politics is not boring you'll be amaze what you can learn if you just #vote . #frederickdouglass #primaryelection

“How do we make goodness attractive?” That was the question Fred Rogers dedicated his life to answering. An ultimate #Thanks4GivingThursday to the incredible #MisterRogers and all of the people that put together the “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” documentary and everyone at @thelittletheatre that helped bring it to #ROC ❤️ It wasn’t just a love of cardigans that I learned from Mister Rogers. He tried to use his show to “make a neighborhood out of the whole country.” He believed that “to grow, every child needs to know that they are loved and accepted just the way they are.” Perhaps nobody in America is more responsible for making kids feel that they were worthy of love. I was lucky that this message was just another affirmation of what I learned from my parents. For many other kids, Mister Rogers was the only person that demonstrated such unconditional love. He may have been the first master of #PositivePsychology . As Rochester’s own #FrederickDouglass said “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men (or women).” There were an endless amount of tweetable quotes of #MisterRogersWisdom and I’m going to have to go see it a few more times to capture them all. If I could do anything in life, it would be to continue his legacy to try to “make goodness attractive.” The ultimate message is that “we are ALL neighbors” is both timely in today’s world and also timeless for every generation. There have been a lot of rough headlines lately in the news and I’ll admit that my typical optimism was being tested. This documentary was exactly what I needed. Not only to be transported back to #MisterRogersNeighborhood , but also to learn how often he too questioned whether he was making an impact. Go see this film. I wonder what the world might look like if we could absorb this message and simply see each other as neighbors. You are all my neighbors and I love you all. Just the way you are. #Thanks4Giving #22WeeksTilThanksgiving

#Repost @metmuseum ・・・ June 19th or #Juneteenth commemorates the announcement of the ending of slavery in Texas in 1865. Born into slavery, Frederick Douglass (1817–1895) escaped his bondage in 1838 and became the most persuasive orator for the cause of abolition, among other reformist causes. In addition to founding a newspaper and penning three autobiographies, he lectured extensively before and during the Civil War, "thundering against slavery," in the words of W. E. B. Du Bois. He advocated for photography’s potential to counteract distorted representations of African Americans and reverse the "social death" caused by slavery. Unknown (American). Frederick Douglass, ca. 1855 #TheMet #FrederickDouglass
We have a comments sheet out as part of our exhibit on Frederick Douglass, and we genuinely enjoyed reading the feedback from our visitors. Most of the comments on this page were left by middle-schoolers who visited us recently. We love their enthusiasm for FD (and our mini statues of him)!! #frederickdouglass #frederickdouglass200 #Douglass200 #FD200 #RBSCP #specialcollections #rarebooks

Maybe is right in her thinking...looking to those in our lives who’ve come to the table with strength through the storms in their lives are exemplary for us.👍🏽 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽 Today’s culture has grown an “I don’t deserve this” mindset and along wit it a sever lack of ability to handle stress😱 ************************* If we pass on real estate, bonds, or china, let’s place an importance on passing on character strength, compassion, bravery, and the sight for seeing others as important as ourselves. 🤝💪🏽🤝💪🏽🤝💪🏽🤝💪🏽 If there is no struggle, there is no progress. ~Frederick Douglass ************************* #stressmanagement #handlestress #stressrelief #stresslevel #emotionalhealth #strongmindset #strengththroughstruggle #strengthliveshere #livestrong #character #characterstrengths #frederickdouglass #strengthquotes #quotestoliveby #tonnerdoll #dollsofinstagram #healthandwellness #fitmind
"If there is no struggle, there is no progress." F. Douglass What an amazing orator, what an amazing man. Frederick Douglass was an African-American social reformer, abolitionist, orator, writer, and statesman. After escaping from slavery in Maryland, he became a national leader of the abolitionist movement in Massachusetts and New York, gaining note for his dazzling oratory and incisive antislavery writings. In his time, he was described by abolitionists as a living counter-example to slaveholders' arguments that slaves lacked the intellectual capacity to function as independent American citizens. Douglass was a firm believer in the equality of all peoples, whether black, female, Native American, or recent immigrant. He was also a believer in dialogue and in making alliances across racial and ideological divides, and in the liberal values of the American Constitution. When radical abolitionists, under the motto "No Union With Slaveholders", criticized Douglass' willingness to dialogue with slave owners, he famously replied: "I would unite with anybody to do right and with nobody to do wrong." #frederickdouglass #author #afroamerican #comfortzone #millionaire #mindset #dailydose #motto #quotes #believe #inspiration #motivation  #business #goals #accomplisment #lion #success #hardwork #bestpic #money #read #wisdom #millionaire_motto  #businessweek   #dedication   #passion  #discipline #slavery

Had a couple of hours to kill during a quick trip to Cambridge/Boston, so I decided to just take a walk, and what do I see? #history @maahmuseum and the Picturing #frederickdouglass exhibit, along with the Robert Gould Shaw memorial sculpture made famous in the movie #Glory ... First time seeing it in person. So I just sat in front of it and chilled for a while. Incredible treat. Have to come back to #absorb more... much much more... #HitTheCityStreetsToEnhanceMySoul A la @atcq #artlife ...experiencing art in all things... #artofkason #boston #beaconhill #cambridge #freedomtrail

I've been so busy that I forgot #juneteenth was yesterday. Here's a quote from my favorite orator in history. It's infuriating that his words still ring true right now. . . . . . . . #juneteenth #blackhistory #blackexcellence #frederickdouglass #speech #orator #blackpride #oppression #familyseparation #injustice
For it is not light that is needed, but fire; it is not the gentle shower, but thunder. We need the storm, the whirlwind, and the earthquake. The feeling of the nation must be quickened; the conscience of the nation must be roused; the propriety of the nation must be startled; the hypocrisy of the nation must be exposed; and its crimes against God and man must be proclaimed and denounced. - Frederick Douglas Artist unknown @theboogiedowncollective #wednesday #wakeup #frederickdouglass #quote #mural #graffiti #art #arte #artwork #artist #instagood #amerika #boriken #nyc #thebronx #theboogiedowncollective #influencer #spiritual #vegan #activist #boricua #kaylovebx

#waybackwednesday This was the beginning of the rest of my life. Who knew this project of getting the #FrederickDouglass statue installed inside the @uscapitol rotunda using social media and having @barackobama approve in his first term would Catapult me to where I am now. 7-foot tall. Bronze. $100k to build. The artist was commissioned and Douglas was homeless. Artist @weitzman_studios | God be knowing.
Yesterday, a proclamation was read in honor of Frederick Douglass in the city of Hayward. Mayor Barbara Halliday graciously accepted this signed print presented by heads of the Frederick Douglass Foundation and the NAACP. And the day before, I had the honor of presenting a print to the mayor of Pittsburg, Pete Longmire, who is a super gracious guy. My thanks to Kevin McGary for being instrumental in all of this.#frederickdouglass #frederickdouglassfoundation #naacp #hayward #pittsburgca #art #tommatousek #tommatousekart

Hey @midnight_cabin is this Frederick Douglass? It is such an iconic image, that I thought I knew when I bought the shirt from you a while ago, but I never find the image online when I try to confirm it. Another stranger just asked me about it. It’s one of my favorite shirts. . . . #historicalfigures #frederickdouglass #tshirt #silkscreen #handmade #historicphoto #history
