Legacy of “Fake Fred” still active by used car salesman Lou Fields; Banneker-Douglass Museum forsakes sacred history of Dr. Frederick Augustus Washington (Bailey) Douglass, Point Boy, Eastern Shoreman, fugitive slave-scholar, Lion of Anacostia, America’s Pharaoh –>

Frederick Douglass: “Of my father I know nothing.” The “Miseduction” & dumbing down of Douglass continues by Baltimore’s Lou Fields who claims to know identity of Douglass’ father. –>
