Frederick Douglass, "Truth is of No Color"

Certainly prominent today, in respect to yesterday's Holocaust museum shooting based on hatred of a race, is remembering a man who fought for equal rights for slaves.

In Frederick Douglass, "Truth is of No Color," author Michael A. Schuman tells the story of Douglass a runaway slave. Douglass believed freedom was worth the risk. He went to New York City and loved his new freedom. He worked very hard to end slavery and is one of the most famous abolitionists in US history!
