"It was the custom in the State of Maryland to require the free colored people to have what were called free papers. These instruments they were required to renew very often, and by charging a fee for this writing, considerable sums from time to time were collected by the State. In these papers the name, age, color, height, and form of the freeman were described, together with any scars or other marks upon his person which could assist in his identification. This device in some measure defeated itself-since more than one man could be found to answer the same general description. Hence many slaves could escape by personating the owner of one set of papers; and this was often done as follows: A slave, nearly or sufficiently answering the description set forth in the papers, would borrow or hire them them till by means of them he could escape to a free State, and then, by mail or otherwise, would return them to the owner. The operation was a hazardous one for the lender as well as for the borrower. A failure on the part of the fugitive to send back the papers would imperil his benefactor, and the discovery of the papers in possession of the wrong man would imperil both the fugitive and his friend."

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.

A father and a grandfather, KCarl is an unyielding defender of the constitution and liberty. Inspired by the guiding principles of the Founding Fathers and holding fast to the oath taken during his service to our country, he launched The ConservativeMESSENGER™ in 2009.
Captivating Messenger- A “grassroots” initiative, The ConservativeMESSENGER’s mission has been to: Enlighten, Educate, Empower and Equip its members based on the Frederick Douglass Republican™ Methodology—a unique and powerfully effective strategy to: (1) Re-Ignite America’s Passion for Liberty; (2) Help the Republican Party recapture its political distinction; (3) Save the souls of the politically lost; (4) Promote racial unity; (5) Create an atmosphere for political dialogue without the accusation of racism or Uncle Tomism; (6) Trump the race card.
A Frederick Douglass Republican™- KCarl has taken what began as a mantra or rallying call and has spearheaded a movement that has climbed into the thousands. In 2011, The ConservativeMESSENGER evolved into what is now the Frederick Douglass Republican™ Movement.
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.
