At last, the long lost President Obama and Frederick Douglass photographs have been found!
The President and First Lady view the resin statue of Douglass in Ireland (May 2011) with Enda Kenny, the former Taoiseach of Ireland (2011-2017). My mom and I️ had the honor of unveiling the twin to the Ireland statue at the University of Maryland in 2015. We’ll also be on hand as the statue in the Obama picture—currently on loan and touring the U.S.—is unveiled at Quinnipiac University on Feb 22nd for their Douglass Bicentennial celebration.
Thank you Todd Allen for locating the Obama photographs. Thank you Kristin Leary for your work carrying on the legacy of our great ancestor. And, thank you Don Mullan for your vision and leadership in creating these powerful symbols of freedom.
