Republican Frederick Douglass Delivers Historic Speech

On this day in history, March 31, 1888, Republican civil rights activist Frederick Douglass delivered a speech before the International Council of Women in Washington, D.C.

During his speech Douglass said “When a great truth gets abroad into the world, no power on earth can imprison or suppress it…such is the truth of a woman’s right to equal liberty with a man…now that it is fixed in the minds of a few…it is bound to be fixed in the minds of many.”

Frederick Douglass (born Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey, c. February 1818 – February 20, 1895) was an American social reformer, orator, writer and statesman.
