Yesterday, a proclamation was read in honor of Frederick Douglass in the city of Hayward. Mayor Barbara Halliday graciously accepted this signed print presented by heads of the Frederick Douglass Foundation and the NAACP. And the day before, I had the honor of presenting a print to the mayor of Pittsburg, Pete Longmire, who is a super gracious guy. My thanks to Kevin McGary for being instrumental in all of this. #frederickdouglass #frederickdouglassfoundation #naacp #hayward #pittsburgca #art #tommatousek #tommatousekart

Hey @midnight_cabin is this Frederick Douglass? It is such an iconic image, that I thought I knew when I bought the shirt from you a while ago, but I never find the image online when I try to confirm it. Another stranger just asked me about it. It’s one of my favorite shirts. . . . #historicalfigures #frederickdouglass #tshirt #silkscreen #handmade #historicphoto #history

I wanted to post this yesterday but I was too despondent, and my hands were too shaky, to make it. But that can’t be an excuse because I am one of the lucky ones. I have to channel my rage and shame rather than let it incapacitate me. . #protestcalligraphy #rageagainstthedyingofthelight #frederickdouglass #familiesbelongtogether #iamanimmigrant

🤜🏾💥🤷🏾‍♂️ Well...at least i waited till after the celebration was over...😆✊🏾🎉🎊🥃🍔🌭...😒 👉🏾”I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races”- Abraham Lincoln 👉🏾The #emancipationproclamation was a military measure , and it didn’t apply to slave states like Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky and Missouri, you know why, because they were loyal to the Union. 👉🏾 "For the sake of your race, you should sacrifice something of your present comfort for the purpose of being as grand in that respect as the white people”- Abraham Lincoln ( he wanted US to go to Africa and South America, he said it was “selfish” for US to want to Stay here) 👉🏾”THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES HAS BECOME AN “ITINERANT COLONIZATION PREACHER,” WHO HAS MADE HIMSELF LOOK “RIDICULOUS” BY PITCHING THIS IDEA THAT WE SHOULD LEAVE THE NATION OF OUR BIRTH.” - #frederickdouglass Listen...I believe in US. But...I don’t know what makes US think that freedom can have a price...except when it comes to US. We never fought for our freedom...they gave it to us...under conditions...that we leave...hence why we are still fighting for equal rights and the paperwork still states that we are 3/5 of a human being. #weightforit , #freeblanch , #getmoney , #hhminc , #hhm4ever , #juneteenth , #memes , #twitter , #facebook , #viceland , #tmz , #theshaderoom , #thisisamerica , #worldstar , #blackhistory , #americanhistory

“To me, ultimately, martial arts means honestly expressing yourself. Now, it is very difficult to do. It has always been very easy for me to put on a show and be cocky, and be flooded with a cocky feeling and feel pretty cool and all that. I can make all kinds of phoney things. Blinded by it. Or I can show some really fancy movement. But to experience oneself honestly, not lying to oneself, and to express myself honestly, now that is very hard to do.” - Bruce Lee #frederickdouglass #brucelee #self #knowledge

#EmancipationDayParade Ex-slaves storm the streets in celebration 🖤✊🏾 “City and states that enjoy full freedom prosper greatly. They have larger populations because #marriage is easier there and more desirable; for #men willingly have children when they believe they can provide for them, when they recognize that their young will not only grow up free men instead of #slaves, but that, with ability, they may also become leaders. In such states riches multiply abundantly, both those produced by agriculture and those produced by industry, for everyone willingly increases his property and goods if he believes that he will be allowed to enjoy them.” #Juneteenth #WeNeedMoreThinkers Richmond not #RVA • • • #Freeman #FrederickDouglass #JohnBrown #HarpersFerry #SojournerTruth #NatTurner #HarrietTubman #CivilWar #BlackExcellence #Melanin #Class #Style #Legendary #Free #Freedom #Power #Tulsa #Greenwood #OakBluffs #BlackHistory #Richmond #Virginia

Today is Juneteenth, celebrating the day that 250,000 black men and women in Texas were told about their freedom—a full two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was passed by Lincoln. This day is recognized and celebrated as the real day that slavery in America ended—after 200 years of families broken apart, bondage, rape, and torture. . . All of us paying attention can connect the sounds and images of kids being separated from their parents to prior families being broken apart. . As the great writer and public intellectual James Baldwin said, “Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” this is what I've self-assigned to learn more. . Do you have more ideas of what I should be reading to understand power as it relates to race? . . . #booksofinstagram #happyjuneteenth #soyouwannatalkaboutrace #whentheycallyouaterrorist #bellhooks #frederickdouglass

On June 19, 1865, the enslaved African-Americans in Galveston, Texas, finally learned the news that they were a free people, nearly three years after President Lincoln had signed the Emancipation Proclamation. While Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee had formally surrendered to the Union Army on April 9, news traveled slowly throughout the South and did not reach the coastal region of Texas until over a month later, when Union Army Gen. Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston with an occupying force of 2,000 federal troops. It was there that Granger enacted General Order No. 3, effectively emancipating all slaves in the region: “The people of Texas are informed that, in accordance with a proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free.” Today, the holiday of Juneteenth commemorates the events of June 1865, and celebrates the emancipation of all slaves in the US. The holiday is marked by a joyous celebration of life and culture, filled with music, dancing, parades, and food. These pictures capture the spirit and energy of Juneteenth and show how one of America’s oldest holidays is celebrated.

"Earnestly hoping that this little book may do something toward throwing light on the American slave system, and hastening the glad day of deliverance to the millions of my brethren in bonds—faithfully relying upon the power of truth, love, and justice, for success in my humble efforts—and solemnly pledging my self anew to the sacred cause...” .

Seen in the New York State Capitol building while on a tour last month. Frederick Douglass asked in 1852 “What to the Slave is the Fourth July?” He advocated a holiday to mark emancipation- January 1, 1863, the date upon which the Emancipation Proclamation took effect. That idea never took hold. Today we acknowledge June 19, 1865, the day upon which slaves in Galveston, Texas were read the Emancipation Proclamation and found out their freedom had been federally mandated two and a half years prior. #juneteenth #juneteenthcelebration #nystatecapitol #frederickdouglass #architecture #design

I remain loss for words that no one has picked up the phenomenal tv series “Underground” @undergroundsptv @johnlegend @mishatrillxxl @shinybootz . . This tv series was so inspiring, nothing like I ever seen before. Although the mini series “Roots” is a classic from an historical point of view. This series had great content from various perspectives, thoughtful writing with developed characters, fabulous cinematography which captivated the viewers and the 🎶 MUSIC choice was unspeakably sensational ... . . It was all around a excellent show for all to see. A show like this is definitely needed in America today, in a time such as this💋 . . #theundergroundrailroad #harriettubman
