A Historic Note: Frederick Douglass as a Founding Father of Black Lives Matter

IllustrationHonorable Frederick (Bailey) Douglass is a Founding Father of the present-day Black Lives Matter Movement, as well the historic Civil Rights Movement.

America’s world famous native runaway confirmed by the United States Senate United States Marshal of the District of Columbia.

The Bible has stories more believable.

Let no misguided child ever forget from whence they come and the lives lost before today.

Every since the murder of Demby on the Great House Farm of Governor Edward Lloyd V of Maryland’s Talbot County the spirit of Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey has manifested itself throughout the nearest and furthest corners of the known world to advocate for equality of human and civil rights of peoples of all nationalities.

To Dr. Douglass, Black Lives Matter.
As well, Irish Independence Matters, Black Women Matter, Black Education Matters, Industrial Education Matters, Black Church Matters, Black Orphanages Matter, Black Patronage Matters, Black Press Matters, Respect of Elders Matters.

Any discussion of Black Lives Matter without contemplative consideration and sincere reflection of the legacy and life of Honorable Dr. Frederick (Bailey) Douglass is uninformed, irresponsible and reckless.

The generations in today’s streets must know and study the names of Demby, Elijah Parish Lovejoy, Charles Van Loon, Heyward Shepherd, John Anthony Copeland Jr., Shields Green, John Brown, Octavius Valentine Catto, Colfax massacre, Reuben Foster, George Junius Stinney, Jr., Emmett Louis Till, El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, Dr. King, Latasha Harlins, Robert “Yummy” Sandifer, Charnice Avia Milton, Anton Black and libraries and archives across generations and geography to understand the depth of the rumble in which we are engaged.
