Reviews for Frederick Douglass Familyfoundation Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

“History, Human Rights, and the Power of One,” a school curriculum guide produced by the Douglass Family
Foundation, is one of the best uses of the legacy of the abolition in America that I have ever seen. As a
Frederick Douglass biographer, as well as a former public high school teacher in Flint, Michigan in the
1970s, I can attest to both the dedication of the Douglass Foundation and to the care and substance of this
program. To take the story of slavery and abolition to young people, and then to connect it to current-day
practices of human trafficking, is simply one of the best ways to get our youth invested in the meaning of the
past and the struggle to re-shape our distracted world in the present. This is thoughtful, carefully-prepared,
deeply informed material and teachers will be very lucky to have it in their hands. I strongly encourage
adoption of this program in as many other cities as possible. Douglass himself could not have imagined a
better use of his own life’s work.”
