Frederick Douglass: Niecy (mom), Mike, Shirley (Cuzzin, BF, God mom). This is one of my fav pics of my Mommy. She was stunningly beautiful. She was fly AF. She was a Goddess whose skin was a brilliant beautiful black. Her weird colored eyes were like marbles in the sunlight they danced like precious jewels. She was drop dead fine and could freeze a room with a walk in. All that and she was an artist. Her floral arrangements we grand and beautiful. Her eye for design dead on. She was a creative. She was a pot smoking free love supporter. She was Respected in the community and every where we went. I'm lucky she decided and choose to have me while still a student at Frederick Douglass High School. I sat in her belly as she sat in class. I believe I learned to love learning becuz of that. She keep my head straight when the streets wanted to keep me. She prepared me to escape unhurt and no criminal record. She was a warrior queen. She was my example of true spirit and determination. She taught me to GRIND and never wait for another man to feed me. When any one celebrates me I know they are in fact celebrating the job she did as a leader teaching me to be one as well. I love u girl. I love u sooooooo much. We talked about this day and now I'm here and I hear U saying "you're a man Michael and it's your job to take care of your family, man. So do it". Yes mam baby. Yes mam. MamaNiecy we love u. Thank u for preparing Me, LaShunda & Lovie for this day.

Frederick Douglass: <p>Black history month day 14: social reformer, abolitionist, orator, writer, and statesman Frederick Douglas.</p> <p>Frederick Douglas was born a slave in Maryland in February of 1818.

He was taught the basics of reading by his master&rsquo;s wife, but her husband discouraged it believing that an education would draw slaves to want freedom. Douglass later insisted that education was the pathway to freedom, and his eloquence stunned many people and challenged the idea that blacks were not capable of being educated enough to enter society as free citizens. In fact, Douglass was so well spoken that many accused him of having never been a slave.</p> <p>Douglass wrote several autobiographies. Describing his experiences as a slave. His 1845 autobiography, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave, became a bestseller and was influential in promoting the cause of abolition, as was his second book, My Bondage and My Freedom (1855). </p> <p>After the Civil War, Douglass remained an active abolitionist as well as a women&rsquo;s suffragist.

After Anna died, Douglass remarried to a white feminist and abolitionist named Helen Pitts.
