Frederick Douglass

According to the U.S. Library of Congress, Frederick Douglass was a "nineteenth-century African-American abolitionist who escaped from slavery and then risked his own freedom by becoming an outspoken antislavery lecturer, writer, and publisher."

To suppress free speech is a double wrong. It violates
