Holiday should honor Douglass
Jan 16, 2017 1:00 AM -
Although Martin Luther King, Jr., was a great leader, I think that, instead of having a holiday for him, our country should have a holiday to honor a different black leader, Frederick Douglass, who lived 1818-95. Douglass was born a slave, and he escaped. He published an abolitionist newspaper, "The North Star," and he gave speeches, about slavery, persuading many Whites to oppose slavery.
