Frederick Douglass Quote Mug

$ 12.95


"If there is no struggle, there is no progress" --Frederick Douglass

Begin your day with our inspirational mug imprinted with words of wisdom by Frederick Douglass.  Frederick Douglass's life spanned generations of the American journey, from the shackles of slavery through the promise of better days in the Reconstruction to the long legacy of Jim Crow.  As a civil rights pioneer, Douglass dedicated his life for equality in the United States and the abolition of slavery.

On view Sept 7 through March 3, 2019, Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow, tells of the central role played by African Americans in advocating for their rights.   Marking  the 150th anniversary of the ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment, the exhibition is organized chronologically from the end of the Civil War to the end of World War I.  The voices of citizens responding to the challenge of citizenship are as relevant today as when first spoken, whether that message was delivered in the 19th century or the 21st.
