@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.

Donated the book "Frederick Douglas - The Lion Who Wrote History" by Walter Dean Myers to the Pomona Public Library. #frederickdouglas #thelionwhowrotehistory #author #walterdeanmyers #pomona #library #june2017 #farrellchiles

On this day in 1800 and 65, Union Soldiers led by General Gordon Granger arrived at Galveston, Texas. They came bearing the news that all enslaved persons were now free as told by the Emancipation Proclamation. This is a very interesting fact, as the Emancipation Proclamation was written and signed in 1863, two years prior to the Union soldiers arrival in Texas.

An important moment in black history, and definitely in the history of Texas and America, today is a day to celebrate the last formal shackles of American slavery broken. This tee is a celebration of some of the figures that helped pave the way for that monumental moment.

You can grab it in the shop, and Happy Juneteenth everyone!

Happy Juneteenth!
Remember the struggles that black people have gone through in America. Remind yourselves of the mountains still to climb. One way to never forget is through literature, which immortalizes the human experience for generations to come. From Frederick Douglas, Harriet Jacobs, and Solomon Northrup to Angie Thomas today. Thank you for telling these stories.
