This is the guy President Trump noted is getting a lot of overdue recognition, presumably gaining ‘followers’ on twitter. Frederick Douglass, an American genius, born a slave, died around the time the first Trump arrived on these shores, too late to make a fortune from slavery.
Douglass gave a fiery speech on July 5, 1852 (almost nine years before first shots of the so-called Civil War) that the great James Earl Jones reads (and Democracy Now! seems to broadcast every July 4). Happy Belated Birthday, America.
