The Distinguished Mister Frederick Douglass
Frederick Douglass, as a former slave, was the most photographed person of his time. It was paramount to his integrity that no portrait showed him smiling. He felt it inappropriate to present anything less than a dignified black man.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, writing has been a passion since the age of 9. I have been a poet, singer, songwriter and budding novelist. Words have been my weapon of choice in the fight for equality, with Baltimore being my home base for over 20 years. It is my desire to bring inspiration, knowledge and thorough understanding of the experiences of a young, black man, living and surviving in the USA.
