Black History: Fredrick Douglass

Photo Credit
Fredrick Douglass was born a slave and escaped slavery, thus becoming one of the most influential abolitionists of the 1840's. He was an excellent orbiter and writer, publishing the book, Narrative of the Life of Fredrick Douglass, an American Slave and many other autobiographies. Douglass was a firm believer in equality of all people, whether black, white, female, or native American. President Abraham Lincoln was a big fan of his, having had a few meetings with Douglass himself.
Fredrick Douglass was not a fan of Lincoln's in the very begining. Though he had supported him throught the Civil War. Douglass was also influenced by William Lloyd Garrison and John Brown. He created a newspaper called "The North Star" and was fond of John Brown (though he disapproved Brown's attempts to create slave revolts in the south). Thus, Fredrick Douglass was adored by many during his time, and fought long and hard for equality amongst the people until his death.
Fredrick Douglass was always found in business attire, composed of nice, tailored suits and some good hair. The outfit below is a chic, business outfit with a sheer, baby blue top as a way to pop some color into the picture. Also added to the lovely outfit would be a chic, crossover bag and creme pumps.
