“Those who profess to favor freedom,

and yet depreciate agitation,

are men who want crops without plowing up the ground.”

Frederick Douglass

 

I kept my daughter’s college literature book.  It’s just like mine when I was in college, only better because it now contains works by Native Americans, black women and more black men.  We need their voices, we need all voices.  Frederick Douglass is enjoying a moment of revitalization in this Black History Month.  I wonder what he would say about the internal coup happening in our government and the grand marches of resistance around the world. He’d probably be out there leading the way.  So here’s to you, Frederick Douglass.
