@johnlegend appears as famed abolitionist #FrederickDouglas on #UndergroundWGN 10/9c

Rochester, August 29, 1868
Dear Harriet: I am glad to know that the story of your eventful life has been written by a kind lady, and that the same is soon to be published. You ask for what you do not need when you call upon me for a word of commendation. I need such words from you far more than you can need them from me, especially where your superior labors and devotion to the cause of the lately enslaved of our land are known as I know them. The difference between us is very marked. Most that I have done and suffered in the service of our cause has been in public, and I have received much encouragement at every step of the way. You, on the other hand, have labored in a private way. I have wrought in the day – you in the night. I have had the applause of the crowd and the satisfaction that comes of being approved by the multitude, while the most that you have done has been witnessed by a few trembling, scarred, and foot-sore bondmen and women, whom you have led out of the house of bondage, and whose heartfelt, “God bless you,” has been your only reward. The midnight sky and the silent stars have been the witnesses of your devotion to freedom and of your heroism. Excepting John Brown – of sacred memory – I know of no one who has willingly encountered more perils and hardships to serve our enslaved people than you have. Much that you have done would seem improbable to those who do not know you as I know you. It is to me a great pleasure and a great privilege to bear testimony for your character and your works, and to say to those to whom you may come, that I regard you in every way truthful and trustworthy.

Your friend,

Frederick Douglass.

Could be just a hunch, or an isolated opinion... but I'm "starting" to think Sean Spicer might not be that good at this job. #donaldtrump #seanspicer #frederickdouglas #blackhistorymonth

Early Works: Tattoo Erinn's progression shot of Frederick Douglas in Trayvon Martin hoodie. Tattoo Erinn sees a vision and creates it, alters the idea with intellect and emotion.
Watercolor Galaxy fro and hoop earrings. Look at the man for who he is internally and what he's rooted from.
Gotta love smart men. Lol. Will post the finished tomorrow.

#frederickdouglas #slave #freedom ... A question(s) I had about slave's mentality was answered in this comic I stumbled upon.

My search for life's "pot-o-gold" has brought me to the #UnitedStatesMint!
Did you know that the U.S. Mint in Denver houses over $50,000,000,000 in gold?! That's $50 BILLION DOLLARS worth of gold. 17% of the nations reserves!! I made several purchases of U.S. Collectors Coin sets, including the new #FrederickDouglas quarter.
We took the guided tour at the Mint and it was so informative, and although no cameras were allowed in the facility itself, the outside of the Mint was fair game! #UnitedStatesOfAmerica #GODisGood

National Africian American Museum
There's so much culture gathered in one place. More pics to come! #rosaparks #frederickdouglas
