I am here, Frederick Douglass.
Essentially, I remain the same as what I was on earth, but what I saw over here could not do justice to my wildest dreams of God’s goodness, which I believed as a mortal. Here, there are no blacks and whites, only souls standing or falling on what their lives were on earth.
Oh, fulfillment! What a Loving God we have! I can only sing my joy, and let mortals know that whatsoever you sow, this shall you also reap.
Frederick Douglass (born Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey, (born circa 1818 – February 20, 1895) was an American abolitionist, women’s suffragist, editor, orator, author, statesman and reformer. Called “The Sage of Anacostia” and “The Lion of Anacostia”, Douglass is one of the most prominent figures in African-American and United States history.
He was a firm believer in the equality of all people, whether black, female, Native American, or recent immigrant. He was fond of saying, “I would unite with anybody to do right and with nobody to do wrong.” (Source: Wikipedia)
