After visiting his home (in IG stories), I had to personally thank Mr. Douglass for his contributions. We both agreed that the president was right — he has been “getting recognized more and more.”👌🏾 #FrederickDouglass #200thBirthYearAnniversary #180thAnniversaryOfBeingFree

I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence.- Frederick Douglass ❤️ #portraitmode #learnfromyourelders #frederickdouglass
Meanwhile in Newark: Anna Murray Douglass' Black Love As @runewark Rutgers University-Newark and friends prepare to commemorate Frederick Douglass' visit to Newark, NJ Plane Street Colored Church in 1849 it is significant to illuminate his co-conspirator Anna Murray Douglass. Technically Anna was his harborer it was illegal to assist and harbor a "slave." He was a self-emancipated enslaved person and it was her money and the suit she made him that was a part of his final attempt at freedom. Over their 40 year marriage Anna Murray Douglass would assist numerous #runawayslaves / #selfemancipated even John Brown was in debt to her. Though people question Anna's power due to her #illiteracy - it was not literacy that freed thousands of self emancipated Blacks it was #power #intelligence and #courage . #Frederick Douglass would remarry two years after her death - after a depression that was surely a mourning of their romantic love but I am sure was also a mourning of the most powerful love he would ever bear witness to in his #rebirth . The death of his liberator and courageous freedom worker for her people. #annamariadouglass #frederickdouglass #frederickdouglassfield #newarkhistory #rutgersnewark #brickcity #slavery #freedom #blacklove #courageouswomen #blacknewspaper #blackleaders

Just me and Freddy D | 📝✊🏽Born into slavery in 1818, Dr. #FrederickDouglass escaped as a young man and became a leading voice in the abolitionist movement. He spent the last 17 years of his life articulating his legacy in the house atop Cedar Hill, #Anacostia . Thanks @abpanphoto for this photo! And thanks to @aniekanreloaded for this wonderful mural (located at 16th St and W St SE). #igdc #acreativedc #bythings #blackhistory #americanhistory

“Once you learn to read, you will be forever free” - Frederick Douglass The pleasure of reading should still be applicable in your second language(s). English, specifically, has so much written content, it would be a disservice to yourself if you don’t partake in all the delicious literature of the language. Words are beautiful but often times they can be overwhelming and second language learners forget what reading should elicit: images of the reading text. The most common exercises to practice reading is the good ol’ summarizing/paraphrasing trick. But one of the problems my students face with them is it’s so tempting to just substitute words with synonyms, not really changing the sentence (essentially keeping what the writer wrote, which is arguably not too far from stealing... although my students do mean well). In order for someone to truly use their own words when describing a reading passage, they must be able to draw out the images that these sentences are painting. That way, they’re easier to retain in their memory and it’s also a lot easier to interpret them using their own words. I start slow, sometimes drawing out images for each sentence. Then, putting all these series of drawings together, students can then write a summary using their own words (paraphrase should include their own analysis of the content). It’s okay to go slow. As with anything that is practiced, this skill becomes more familiar. Pretty soon, instead of drawing out 1 sentence at a time, it becomes 3, then 5, then a full reading passage. And with even more practice, there won’t be any need for physical drawings. It’ll be more automatic for the mind to do it. And as always, stay present. No one else is expecting you to be the most efficient reader in your second language(s). Those thoughts are useless obstacles that hinder you from truly experiencing this world.

WHO WORE THE AFRO BETTER... Frederick Douglass, Frederick Ducklass, or my dad? 😂 This is also literally dark humor versus duck humor. And it's possible that it may not be a duck, but who cares?😂 Ducks care, that who.🦆😐 Also this joke may not be suitable for translation. 👎🏾 #darkhumor #duckhumor #gotjokes #history #frederickdouglass #afroduck #humor #comedy #itsoktolaugh #laugh #entertainment #funny #funnytome #hashtag #randomcactusfollows #🌵#cactusemojigetsnolove

This book is also the beginning of a new direction in my career. Art by @damonsmythart , colors by Marissa Louise, letters by @jamesguyhill. Published by @tenspeedpress. In stores January 2019. #frederickdouglass
Meet us on font hill at 5 and don’t mind some of their polo shirts with ties. 🤦🏾‍♂️ But if you can help us with a few more button ups and ties it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to those who have already donated 🤝🤗 #frederickdouglass #highschool #westside #baltimore #maryland #basketball #doug
If you watch the news... It would be apparent to you that we are in the age of Nero Hopelessness abounds. It seems like everything is out of control. That you have no control over your happiness or outcome. Its luck or fate... This. Is. A. Lie. But human bondage is prevalent. The bondage that we speak of are the shackles of our limiting beliefs. Set your mind free and believe impossible is nothing. #realestate #realestateinvestor #rocinvestor #rochesterny #journey #relentlesspursuit #upstateny #againstallodds #westernny #withoutlimits #frederickdouglass

From #FrederickDouglass “My Bondage and My Freedom”. Too powerful not to share.
The city of Rochester celebrated the bicentennial of Frederick Douglass’s birth throughout 2018 (Rochester was his adopted home), so it seemed fitting to close out the year by reading his first autobiography, “Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave.” #frederickdouglass #narrativeofthelifeoffrederickdouglass #autobiography #thisisroc

Day 71/100 in #100daysofhope2018 I have been deeply engaged with the life, words, and example of Frederick Douglass in the past two weeks. There is so much I could say about how his lived experience has landed on me anew, but it would require much more than a social media post. Instead his own words are what is needed right now. His model of risk-taking, clarity, determination, and authentic leadership is what is needed right now. He never wavered from the goal of freedom and throwing off the bonds of oppression and death inherent in slavery and the American experiment. . I find the following quote incredibly relevant in this moment... “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. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.” . The work continues and we must continue to agitate...to make the demand...to do the work. #the100dayproject #the100dayproject2018 #100daysofhope2018 #midterms #printmakers #reliefprint #linocut #artactivism #artandaction #artandsocialpractice #artofhope #hope #truth #myleadersareclueless #communities #wecanberhechange #frederickdouglass #makethedemand
‘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.’ #frederickdouglass
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. #FrederickDouglass #Medellin #Colombia #instatravel #metrocableMedellin #ParqueArvi #Antioquia
