The Gist of Freedom is pleased to present to you excerpts from The Frederick Douglass Capitol Statue Unveiling Ceremony with songtress Lori Williams and Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and the great great grand-daughter of Frederick Douglass, Nettie Washington-Douglass..
“On this statue – there are many things that are on this beautiful – isn’t it beautiful statue. It says on the side that: ‘The soul that is in me, no man can degrade.’ ‘The soul that is in me, no man can degrade.’ How perfect, how beautiful.
Each understood the truth of Douglass’ statement: ‘Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will,’ he said. Frederick Douglass demanded freedom. He demanded a nation that stayed true to its ideals. He demanded and helped achieve a ‘more perfect union.’ And we still have work to do.

History is brought to life in a dialogue between ex-slaves and abolitionists Frederick Douglass and Sojourner Truth, reinacted on stage this Spring by actors Abdul Hussain Quddus and Naimah Latif Today's conversation examines how the Post Civl War era of violence and poverty has not changed much in the last 150 years. "Sojourner Truth" discusses how the government's Freedmen's Bureau (like today's welfare system) creates a cycle of dependency, poverty, lawlessness, and immorality. "Frederick Douglass" talks about how the slave system created an emasculated male that had no respect for himself or women. Both met with President Abraham Lincoln to make demands for the newly freed black citizens of America. What can be done to reverse the modern day effects of slavery? Call in and comment.

In The Hammer and the Anvil, the award-winning author Dwight Jon Zimmerman vividly depict the tumultuous time through the lives of two men who defined it: Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln.
The Hammer and the Anvil reveals that its protagonists each wrestled with the question of slavery from a young age. Douglass, a slave who was spared no brutality, once fought an especially cruel master and eventually escaped north to freedom. Lincoln, who was hired out by his father to do manual labor on neighbors’ farms, found this harsh life intolerable. As a senator, Lincoln sought ways to end the westward spread of slavery, believing that adding free states to the Union would diminish poverty and the power of Southern states. Douglass was less patient. He had become a skilled orator and an influential editor of Northern abolitionist journals, and called on white Americans to honor their nation’s founding commitment to liberty.
When the Civil War erupted in April 1861, Douglass hoped that the conflict would mean the end of slavery. But Lincoln delayed emancipation, and Douglass despaired—until he met the president face-to-face and recognized that their causes were one and the same. Featuring evocative and dramatic scenes of this seminal time, The Hammer and the Anvil will engage both Civil War buffs and young people new to the study of American history.
Kenneth Morris, Jr is the Great-great-great grandson of Frederick Douglass and Great-great grandson of Booker T. Washington. He is President of the Frederick Douglass Family Foundation. Their Mission: The Frederick Douglass Family Foundation’s (FDFF) vision is to end human trafficking in communities all over the world and our mission is to educate and inspire young people to take collective action against human trafficking and modern-day slavery using modern communications and social networking technologies. Since slavery is so deeply woven into the human fabric, something as transformative as a sustained social movement is needed to achieve our mission – a youth-led, anti-trafficking revolution. Their Work: Slavery exists today in various forms throughout the world. It’s estimated that millions of people live in a state of servitude. Right now there are women being forced into prostitution, children working in factories for little or no wage and men being sold or traded like cattle. They started the Frederick Douglass Family Foundation to help those people to live free.
