Forgive me if my words are not up to the challenge of establishing a statue for Frederick Douglass.  Once free from Slavery, he was an activist for African American rights for the rest of his life.  He is long overdue for recognition of his efforts.  I believe a bronze statue, placed at The Lincoln Memorial is a proper recognition of his efforts.  He must be remembered.  We still have much to learn from him.

“The American people have this to learn: that where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob, and degrade them, neither person nor property is safe.”  -- Frederick Douglass
