Anna, Birthday, and Black History Month: <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. It is likely that his father was also his first master. He celebrated his birthday on February 14, although there is no official record of his date of birth. 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. He was active in the Republican Party. Douglass became the first African American nominated for Vice President of the United States as the running mate and Vice Presidential nominee of Victoria Woodhull, on the Equal Rights Party ticket. </p> <p>After escaping slavery, Douglass married a free black woman, Anna Murray and the two remained married for over 40 years and had several children. After Anna died, Douglass remarried to a white feminist and abolitionist named Helen Pitts. Though interracial marriage was certainly rare at the time, Pitts and Douglass were quite in love and paid no mind to detractors, many within their own families. Douglass responded to the criticisms by saying that his first marriage had been to someone the color of his mother, and his second to someone the color of his father.</p>

Family, Friends, and Life: The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on the death of former Cuban President Fidel Castro: "It is with deep sorrow that I learned today of the death of Cuba's longest serving President. "Fidel Castro was a larger than life leader who served his people for almost half a century. A legendary revolutionary and orator, Mr. Castro made significant improvements to the education and healthcare of his island nation. "While a controversial figure, both Mr. Castro's supporters and detractors recognized his tremendous dedication and love for the Cuban people who had a deep and lasting affection for "el Comandante" "1 know my father was very proud to call him a friend and I had the opportunity to meet Fidel when my father passed away. It was also a real honour to meet his three sons and his brother President Raúl Castro during my recent visit to Cuba. "On behalf of all Canadians, Sophie and I offer our deepest condolences to the family, friends and many, many supporters of Mr. Castro. We join the people of Cuba today in mourning the loss of this remarkable leader."

Black History Month, Definitely, and Tumblr: <p><a href="http://ipreferthe-drummer.tumblr.com/post/139685498035/proudblackconservative-since-it-is-black" class="tumblr_blog">ipreferthe-drummer</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://proudblackconservative.tumblr.com/post/139682882774/since-it-is-black-history-month-whatever-i-may" class="tumblr_blog">proudblackconservative</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>Since it is black history month, whatever I may feel on the matter, I decided to share some of the people in black history I find most inspiring:<br/> 1. Sojourner Truth – Slave and eloquent public speaker. Famed for her speech “Ain’t I a Woman?”<br/> 2. Madame CJ Walker – The first female (of any race) self-made millionaire. Made her fortune selling hair care products.<br/> 3. Harriet Tubman – Escaped slave and emancipator of hundreds<br/> 4. Douglas – Former slave, abolitionist, orator, writer, suffragist, and vice presidential nominee<br/> 5. Booker T. Washington – Foremost black educator of the late 19th and early 20th century. Invaluable in southern race relations.</p> <p>These men and women made a huge impact in a time where everything was set against them. Not content to simply be victims or hate their perceived oppressors, they did what they could with what they had to make a difference and we remember them for it today by celebrating the many opportunities that the fought for everyone to have.</p> </blockquote> <p>Have you heard of George Washington Carver? He’s one of my favorite people in American history. He was raised as a slave and went on to become a botanist that made things out of crops in the south that were very common. Often the cash crops such as tobacco would make the land tough to grow things on but he invented so many things to do with peanuts and sweet potatoes that he practically created an entire new market for farmers that wouldn’t hurt their land as much. He’s awesome.</p></blockquote> <p>Yes! I really like him too! This is definitely not an exhaustive list of great African-American history makers :)</p>
