"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.
